Dark dark sweet cherry nose with earthy undertones. This is gonna be a big one. Mouthfeel is packed with licorice ripe cherry depth. Astringency in the midtones through finish adds to the complexity. Likey!

Young, untamed, and hopeful. Like me in the 90's only age worthy.

Awesome as always! Not overly extracted with good fruit showing through on the nose and palette with a hint of earth and minerality. One of our favorite go-to wines that is consistently good. :-)

One of the smoothest Three Valleys I've ever had. Always such a great value. If you're the type who carries a "house" wine, a great candidate for your resident red.

2014 Vintage- Love the juxtaposition of the characteristics of this wine! Jammy fruit up front but a hella solid backbone with some good spice and leather notes.

Now that's a good Zin! Not much blue fruit. Still classic.
