Pours garnet in color. Fresh cracked black pepper in your face followed by ripe fruit cinnamon and clove. The pepper moves to the background in flavors and dark berry followed by a hint of toast. This is a big wine. It is hot with a medium body and a very long finish. Heat mellows after decanting.

First experience with a Tobin James Zin. Whoa. Nose is addicting - licorice, graphite, dark fruit. Palette is huge, jammy dark blue fruits - blackberry, blueberry, black plum. Together with some rock/mineral and oaked notes - vanilla, clove, cardamom. Med+ acidity and tannins.

Pepper, cinnamon & clove spice, dark berries and jam, long finish. The pepper softens with aeration allowing the cinnamon spice and berries to tantalize the senses.
