Cloudy, blue black core with thin violet rim. Medium intensity and complexity of aroma - baked rhubarb, buttery pastry, brown sugar, bacon, sweet cigar smoke. Medium plus body, dry, medium plus tart acidity, high alcohol 14.6% throws little heat in the mouth but a slight burn in the throat. Rustic with a medium finish that shows cranberry, raspberry, black pepper with a lingering vanilla extract.

Color lighter than most zins. Dry, subtle berry. Did not have typical jammy zin flavor. Not a fan of this wine
