A very satisfying, if not complex, Zin.
Eye: Saturated dark ruby with purple highlights.
Nose: Ripe, fruity nose, with lots of friendly black raspberry fruit and some minerals lurking in the background.
Mouth: Soft, deep, and full-bodied, with ripe blackberry and mineral flavors, a long finish, and nice balance with no excess alcoholic heat. Some tannin to ensure another year or two's keeping.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next 2 years.
Price/store: Was $22 and change at Spec's on Smith.
