A slightly sweet and very fruit-forward Zin. Flavors of cherry, oak and slight vanilla. This is very smooth and decadent for a Zin. The finish is quick and fleeting...almost like a tease. However, overall it's a great, and affordable easy drinking Zin. (Got it at Total Wine)

One of the most consistently pleasing zins I've had at this price range. I always keep a bottle around.

My favorite wine so far! Very fruity but not too sweet, and not bitter taste or weird aftertaste

Bright ruby purple. Present nose of boysenberry cobbler. Echoed on the medium full, Fruity McFruitface palate. Medium acidity. Medium minus tannins are barely there, but somehow I don’t mind with this style. Probably because of the fruit bomby-ness of it all: who wants crippling tannins with that? But seriously, nurse… Enjoy this with burgers, pizza, or as I am, with chili over pasta.

Fruity on the nose but a little acidic on the taste.
