This wine is Rick James bitch... super freak.

Unfortunately, it’s not super good.

Sweet... yet tart. At least the bottle looked cool.

It tastes like the label. So clowns, and bearded ladies, and invisible men, bears, trapeze artists, fire breathers and sword swallowers. Not my jam. Tastes like jam too.

There isn’t a varietal Michael David doesn’t dominate. While this Zin isn’t the spiciest I’ve had it sure packs a hell of a burst of flavour on the palate. I drank it as fast as a beer it was so good. Next bottle I’ll slow down. Promise.

Lots of fruit without being jammy, lots of alcohol (15.0%) without tasting hot. A really nice dinner wine.

Very sweet on front end. So if that’s your thing, add a point to my review

It’s almost watery and has a heavy taste of alcohol

짙은 블랙베리, 블랙체리, 바닐라향. 높은 당도. 끈적하게 입에 착 붙는 맛. 바닐라 아이스크림을 먹는 것 같다. 오크와 스모키향이 끝에 느껴짐. ₩24790 @costco. Deep black berry, black cherry, vanilla scent. Sticky and very sweet. Vanilla icecream flavour. Oak and smoky scent at the end.

Punching way above its weight. Chocolate, cinnamon, tobacco, vanilla from the oak, on the nose. Viscous on the palate; not tannic, but well defined. Really satisfying, especially at $17. Pandemic bottle #8.

I don’t usually drink Zinfandel but I do like Michael David wine. Lots of oakiness and tannins, has a nice long finish. (Time to trim some palm fronds tomorrow 🥴)
