Delicious, classic Paso Robles. Dried stone fruit, especially apricot and a touch of metallic tannins. Complex all around.

A little young for my taste, but shows good promise. Very fruity, but could probably use a little mellowing time. Which is why I have a second bottle in the garage!

We had this at the Lodge in Deadwood (brought from home from our cellar). Fruity zin w/o all the alcohol (14%)...not a fruit bomb. Very tasty--would have again $31.50

What!? Amazing 17year old Paso Zin? Yup. Drinking nice. Totally integrated. The alcohol is balanced but present and adds a nice heat in the lingering spice filled finish. 👌🏻
