Tasting Notes: Tobacco stains, rain-soaked cemetery earth, claustrophobia, and denim shirts. Intense, bloody finish. Pairs best with journals packed with tiny, precise, hand-printed letters in an alphabet you created, and knives.

Robert Parker gave this new vintage 90 points for a good reason. Probably the best in years, and a sexy new label to show off in perfect timing! Enjoying this beyond expectations.

Goes great with a porterhouse, grey and black morel mushrooms sautéed in butter.

Just okay for the price. It was bit acidic and I woke up with heartburn after drinking this, so I would not buy again.

If loving this wine is a sin then so be it. Dark cherry, raspberry, blackberry, pepper & spice and just enough tannins to give it some firmness. My favorite under $20 Zin.

Wow I realize this wine is a value wine but the overoaking and residual sugar make this simple and unappetizing

Deep purple on the glass. Spice on the nose and finish. Chocolate on the palette with a lingering finish. Very good wine value.
