Victory Zin. For the day and I dunno life. I’m amazed by older Zins because (of the ones I’ve tasted) you can tell they are not supes frosh but also you’d have no idea they were so aged. Well the sediment might alert you but that doesn’t come until the end of the bottle. Autumn leaves, roasty plums, black cherry, grippy but ripe tannins and baking spice of the nutmeg and mace sort. I love Zin. This one confirms my love.

Regardless that I tried multiple times to have it recognize a Petite Sirah - I live this with BBQ!
