I can see why this was given a huge score by a certain publication. Not really my style as much, this tastes like a wine that could have been made by Dave Phinney or Charles Smith. Fruit forward with a polished mouthfeel and some darker flavors too. Definitely a very good value for the $$.

Still young yet promising, building on a consistent success of previous vintages, this is a solid classic and relatively elegant Zin. The color is almost black, the nose is lightly ripe with plums, black cherries, and the classical spicy notes of cinnamon, cloves and licorice. Body is medium full, with firm tannins that round up quickly and a light acidity to support this fruity flattering creation. Pleasant finish. My score 88, drink to 2021 perhaps longer

Got it at a restaurant and for the retail price of probably somewhere in the low $20s not bad.

Fruit sweet nose with heavy alc. Blue fruit attack with soft mid palate inflection of thyme and oregano. A bit flat on the resolution.

RICH without being over the top, we'll balanced black fruit flavors, moderate acidity and ripe tannins. Good with food

Slightly bret nose. Plum and dark fruit, pencil lead, and oak. Quite dry with a medium acid finish. A medium bodied red that held up to a steak.

Dark berries, black berry, oak, cigar and tough spices. Long, dry finish with tannins cleaning the palette. Fantastic balance.
