Hot and jammy. The over 16% alc is just too much for this wine. I still enjoyed it with ribs in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but my wife refused to finish her glass, which is a rare event.

Plump blackberry, lovely texture, integrated alcohol. What's not to love?

16.3 alc! Lol this is California zyn at its best in my opinion, really well balanced good with food or by itself, or even at the end of a nice dinner while talking to your friends...

Smoked meats, rhubarb and a little funk on the prominent nose. Jammy purple fruits are balanced against an integrated tannic backbone with a spicy, peppery finish. Some may think it overripe but it is a great Zin in my book.

My “open that oversize bottle week”, part 2. Finally getting to a few bottles that languished in the corner of the offsite locker because they won’t fit in the Vinotemp. Turley is the prime example... I’m drinking much less Zin these days, but this was a nice example - raspberry and a touch of pepper.

Drinking incredibly well now. Delicious rich cherry and red fruits. Really sorry I don’t have another bottle.
