I had my doubts, and I’m glad I didn’t hold it a day longer, but this is lovely now. Deep transparent ruby, with a musty perfume of ripe red and purple fruits, raisins, fruit leather, a little balsamic note and allspice. Fruit on the palate is stewed but vibrant, with some orange peel bitterness adding complexity on the finish. Decanted off sediment, but didn’t need any time to air.. very delicate and aromatically open at this point.

This zin is 16.5 percent alcohol. I was too hot at time of purchase. I forgot this 2002 in my cellar. Definitely turned. Oddly the hot alcohol tastes receded .that surprises me. Still some zin flavor.
