This is a very reticent, brooding Zin. Unlike most Zins, this needs 2-3 years to be at its best.
Very dark violet-tinged ruby. Low-toned nose of dark blackberry, fragrant, sweet woodsmoke, and chalk. Mouthfilling and dense, yet with a surprisingly light mouthfeel. Very pure, dark, monochromatic flavors of chalky, dense blackberry extract. Loads of very soft tannin. Finish lasts a long time. This is all potential right now. B+, with the potential to be an A in a couple of years. I got this for $19 from Wineaccess.com.
