A rich, ripe, hedonistic Zin. But not over the top. I like it a lot.
Rich, deep, sultry dark ruby. Richly fruity, strikingly pure nose, with loads of ultra-ripe black raspberry syrup notes, warm baking spices, and clean, stony minerals. Concentrated, weighty, and deeply-flavored. It's got loads of stony mineraliness and blackberry and ripe cassis fruit. Very full bodied, and there's a bit of heat in the finish, but it's a feature, not a bug. The finish goes on and one, with something like dry vintage port notes clinging for nearly a minute. A very distinctive wine. Try it with a grilled porterhouse. A. I don't know how much this cost. My brother got it direct from the winery and gave it to me.
