A few of us stopped by the wine storage facility today to “celebrate” the 4th in style...wine style. American zins and American Sparklers. Happy 4th 🇺🇸

Maybe the name sways me, but I always get notes of cedar in this wine. As in, cedar bark. Also pencil shavings. Cinnamon on the nose with almost a cooling/mint note on the finish. Would like to drink this alongside the Lamborn Zin and compare some Howell Mtn Zins!

Smelled like prune juice, but tasted like deft precision of mountain Zin winemaking!

With a moderate decant, it was aromatic, with rich core of red and blue fruits and some savory notes. Delicious. @ bottega in napa

Dark purplish red. Dark nose coated in dark cocoa, spices and some sweet spices too. Heavy and dry tannins (7/10) with a medium to medium plus body. A touch jammy yet restrained on the palate. Layers of bramble berries and spices too. Very dry and long finish. Drink till 2024.

On the nose a pleasant mix of dried and tart red fruits mixed with cardamom and cinnamon with a decent plum sauce.

The palate is jammy red fruits and hot, hot heat. The alcohol isn't as evident with food but on its own it's got a mean streak. Eat with a hangar steak with a port wine sauce. That'll do ya right.
