Still alive from half bottle, but a lot more tar and savory than normal 750mls of geyserville of this age. Cassis and cigar box on the pallet.

Tasted alongside a 1/2 bottle of '91 Lytton Springs. This was brooding, meaty, and riper. It was the big brother, perhaps a little bit of a meathead but sweet underneath. I think the Petite Sirah makes a big difference.

I've had it in my cellar for 15 years... Shoulda drank it 5 years ago. Plummy and raisiny with not much acidity left

Just lovely: fruit cake, mocha, chilled out tannins, and a little dust. For a '91 50% zin this is showing and drinking beautifully. And who says well made zin can't age?!
