Low tannin, no cloying sweetness. Not complex for a Zin, but very drinkable. Great as a house wine at this price.

Dark purple color and not clear. Big legs. Distant nose of plum and leather with some cinnamon and minerals. Lovely, smooth palate with balanced tannin and a slightly bitter finish with leather on the lips. Very drinkable.

The most earthy wine I’ve ever tasted. Think pine needles and tree bark. Interesting.

I don't know if it's the aerator but holy yum. Little jammy but a solid spice mixed in there.

Big bold aroma. Big Dark plums upfront with a perfect dry tannin finish.

Not a good taste. Very fruit-forward, not dry like Zin usually is.

Slightly sweet, needs some time to open, more I drink the better it gets.
