Robert Parker rated this highly (giving it a 90), but I didn't think this was a particularly distinguished Zin.
Eye: Deep plummy violet color.
Mouth: Big but simple fruity flavors (sweet plum and blackberry), with a flat mouthfeel. It lacked the vibrancy and minerality I love in top-flight Zin from, say, Mendocino County or Paso Robles. This wine was chunky but unexceptional.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next year.
Price/store: Was about $18 at Whole Foods on Bellaire.
