Tasted at a wine tasting in Scottsdale. Displays aromas of blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, black cherry, black plums, and black currants, along with hints of toasted vanilla, white pepper, lavender and sage. It has a rich smooth texture, a soft, low-acid low-tannin structure and a full layered and easy drinking finish. Paired with bruschetta chicken and roasted asparagus. Paid $24.95.

Lots of red fruit aromas, not jammy, low acid and tannins, I wanted a better finish

A rich Zin leading blend. The nose opens with ripe black fruits and juicy raspberry, and turns to peppery spice, smoke, and hint of violet. Full and nicely textured, with taste of ripe plum, blueberry jam, resin, burnt brown sugar, and cocoa. The medium acidity is fresh enough for a balance feel. Silky tannins.
Very tasty.
