Again - I’m not ordinarily a zin fan but this is pretty good. Good floral nose. Mouthwatering acidity with pronounced strawberry and raspberry on the slightly sweet side. Muted tannins with moderate lingering g finish.

I am not a Zin fan but this is the first one that I’ve ever had that I’d drink again. Lighter and fruitier than the pungency I’m typically turned off by.

Earthy, smokey aroma. Not very jammy for a Zin. Tobacco/smoke flavor, but nice tannin. Not my favorite but not bad either.
