Classic aged zin from some of the oldest existing vines in the USA. Probably a bit past peak, but no need to hurry up in drinking these as it should hold for another decade. Mega 90’s bottle art, complete with super tall bottle.

As a Zin lover, this is the best Zin I've ever had the pleasure to taste. It is big fruit forward which is typical of modern Zins nowadays. Big purple legs, big jammy and cherry flavors. Bold on the palate and the closest you will get to a big Cab. Mild tannins and a beautiful lingering finish that ends with a gentle taste. Velvety vanilla and burnt butterscotch. This is the real deal folks. TDO old vines from the Deaver vineyard are 130 years old.
