That's my dog Zinny in the background. Guess what he's named after? (Hint, it's not Howard Zinn.)

This is a very pure tasting, balanced Zin. Great value at $14. Perfumey brambly black raspberry fruit and a little carrot cake on the nose. Beautifully ripe tangy black raspberry and blackberry fruit in the mouth, with some subtle stony minerals in the finish. Full bodied but with good acids. Not much tannin to speak of. Perfect for everyday dinners.
