Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Deep red with bright aromas of ripe red fruit. The palate shows raspberry, cherry and plum flavors with notes of pepper and cinnamon spice. Round tannins, good balance give this wine complexity. The finish shows its power, lingering with some leather, oak and cacao tones.

Being that I was in the Navy and it has this unit of white pepper grapefruit and a really nice finish. Goes really good with a nice ribeye or something fatty

Good full zin, a little heavy on the tannins. I've had better at this price point, but its a solid Cali Zin. Tagged Joe so he know

Mild spice of white pepper, not super full bodied or fruity for me. ($40)

Cherry, slightly floral. A light bodied Zin. Very smooth and drinkable now.

Cherries, vanilla, pepper...cinnamon? Round mouth feel, good finish, maybe a bit more acid than tannin.
