One of my favorite zins. The vintages aren’t so far apart in quality, they always do well because of their harvest and control methods regardless of year. Fruit nose of blackberry and currant, velvet mouth feel, smooth on the palate. Thickness of a cab sav but less tannin or dryness. Fruit taste - strawberry, blackberry, extra light oak, bit of chocolate. Back of the throat is not sharp at all with light, pleasurable alcohol.

38th Anniversary and one of our favorite wines. Very smooth with great fruit notes and a nice finish.

Bought at Kroger to try. It was ok. I didn’t care to much for it but it wasn’t real bad. Not oaky enough for me or dry enough. Just trying something different but I’ll go back to trying others.
