Lots of leather and cherry on the nose with some acidity. Dry, mellow, light notes of dark chocolate covered cherries. Neutral, with body. Little lingering in the back. A little spice. Somewhat juicy. Very good wine.

Very tasty wine with lamb on the 19th floor in Amsterdam with our friends from Sweden! The wine has a scent of licorice and what we call in Dutch appelstroop

Fruit forward. Not very complex. None of the smoky, peppery flavors I like in Zin. More like a house/table win. Meh.

The wine was a little dry when first opening the bottle (evem with aerator) but was very smooth the days after. Has a little bit of sweetness that gives it a nice touch. Definitely great at room temperature! One of my favorites

Pretty tart. Next day after sitting open on counter the change in flavor was not to my liking.

Just acidic enough for me. Not too sweet. Oaky finish. Made me want to drink it around the camp fire.
