Dense red, some sediment. Jam, mint and ethanol notes on nose. Raspberry and red fruit flavors - tart plum, cherry, also wood, with licorice-tar-chewing gum aftertaste, eventually. Dispersed seed tannins need time to open up. It’s not great, a tad tart and hot, just enough tannin chewiness in finish to go with a frozen pizza or, in my case, frozen veggie lasagna.

Standard wine, good price but there are others much better at the same price

Very jammy and sweet. Decent for 10+/- price point. Mellowed out and was a bit more palatable after letting it breathe.

A decent Zin. I'm partial to how zins tasted about 8-10 years ago. This one really needs to breath before enjoying it. Some of the jamminess blows off and it becomes much more drinkable.

Fruity. Not a classic zinfindal. Easy drinking, low tannins. Bought at Kroger and would buy again at this price point. $10

Trying to find a good Red Zin and bit on the flashy label. Overall, for the price this was a decent wine. I would explore more red Zins before I would buy this again.

It's a bit tart! It sales for $20 bought it for $10. Not what I expected a Zin to taste like. Most likely won't buy again.
