Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of cherries, strawberry jam, blueberries, tobacco, spices, light barnyard, wood, cloves, cola and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, sweet raspberries, blueberries, wood, light vanilla, tobacco, light earth and peppercorn.

Nice length on the finish with very soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 4 year old Zinfandel is still very fruity. Well balanced with a smooth mouthfeel, but not very complex.

Good right out of the bottle and doesn't change much with air time.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses, dried fruits and crackers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$15.

Unlike the Earth, this Zin is very round, much like a sphere. A bit weak on the backside, like a pair of ass-less chaps.

Great Zin. Dark cherry and a little smoke or tobacco. Doesn't taste very high alcohol.
