Dark ruby color with intriguing dark fruit, roast coffee, spice, and a bit of eucalyptus aromas. On the palate its medium-bodied with surprising acidity, and dusty tannins. It shows baked blackberry, black raspberry, roast coffee, vanilla and spice flavors. Lingering sweet finish.

Very dark purple, very dark fruits. Dried spices, black pepper, ripe plum, dried figs. Little sweet upfront on the palate, light to medium tannins on the finish. Jam bomb.

Bit of an alcoholic fruit bomb. Very extracted and oaky, lots of fruit, but adequate acidity to hold things together. Better w food, just not my cup of tea.

Lush nose of vanilla, cream, spice, and heavy dark fruits. Dark ruby color and medium body. Excellent balance on the palate with surprising acid and structured tannins lead way to a velvety mouthfeel. Notes of bright blackberry, sweet blueberry, oak and spice caresse the tongue. Tobacco leaf, coffee, and dense black fruit linger on the finish. Superb Zin.
