Slightly oaky in the beginning, but very enjoyable!

Very jammy on the front end and a nice alcoholic "breath" on the finish. Opened it on the first cold evening of the year for some belly warming.

About as sweet as I can take a wine before it seems synthetic and overly tampered with. That said, I did enjoy this wine, very jammy and heavy. 15.1% so watch out. Straight forward and fruity. Great price for a Dry Creek Vally Zin.

I have no clue why I bought red Zen and after drinking this wine I still don't know. It had red fruit and loads of unintegrated oak. Not a QPR
