Deep dark inky, ripe berry fruit. Luxurious body.

A very pleasant Zin blend. Lots of fruit and a real rounded mouth feel. Probably one of the best blends I have had in years. Great rib choice.

One of the best Zin blends I've had. Bold yet smooth. Let it breathe a bit.

Jammy with lots of black pepper. R/S. M + alcohol and body. M tannin. Black jammy fruit on the palate with a M finish. Balanced.

This is a big wine. Rich, ripe and intense.. cherries, licorice, slight hint of cured meat. In the mouth it has a lot of pepper, chocolate, ripe fruit and a super long finish. This wine has a surprisingly soft feel with the tannins coming in at the end. Love this wine! 11/9/14

Rich and opulent with massive bark beery flavored and a delicate raisin like finish.

Very good, maybe not as complex as the previous vintage.

Rich and spicy. Bright, berry fruit up front a little tannin on the back. Lush, with some creamy notes. Very big and full. The tannin soften after sitting in the glass a while.
