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.

Nose of driv8ng by an oil refinery with fermented raspberries. Explosive astringent berry bomb. Far better than the one-dimensional petite sirah that they produce.

2015 vintage too sweet, too raisin-y and flabby. Really not for me.

A nice sub-$20 Zin. Strong fruit bouquet with more balance on the pallet. Dark berry balanced with a little oak and smoke. Slightly glycerol and toasted vanilla finish. More complex than its price with dried and dark fruit and a bold feel and alcohol punch.

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

Very smooth drinking, cherry on the nose. I thought this was a fantastic wine.

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