First thing I noticed was the smokiness in the scent. Put me off initially but upon tasting it I was actually happy to sip this by itself. I didn't taste the smoke anymore but after letting it sit for a bit, the end notes had an almost chocolate taste. I'd buy this again because it is a good value for the taste and price.

Nose is clean, med intensity, red cherry, spice, clove, liquorice, leather, fig. Palate is dry. Anyone saying this wine is sweet is probably confusing the immense amount of jammy cooked fruit flavours. High alcohol at 14% but for a Zin that's not a surprise. Med low tannin and acidity. Some red cherry and smokiness from the oak as well. Med body. Med to long finish. Good value and some nice balanced flavours going on. Prepare for purple teeth after only a few sips :)
