Solid wine for $17 on WTSO. DEFINITELY needs at least 1 1/2 hours to open up. The wifey really liked this one. So much so she finished hers before mine which almost never happens.

Interesting pinot for the price. Nice nose of cherries and strawberries and matching flavor profile. I little thin and a bit sweet but overall a nice drinking wine.

This has a very small window to drink once open. REALLY needs to air out but if you leave the cork out of the bottle for the evening, on day two it's terrible. Use an aerator on day one and leave the cork in. On day two it is drinkable. During prime drinking time, I'd give it an 88+ but I have to think too much about the timing to enjoy this $10 bottle of wine. I'd pass and wait for something else.

Nice. Needs about an hour. Opened a few bottles and found that only the real Zin lovers enjoyed it.

Second bottle only slightly better than the first. I think my score of 82 is generous. Extremely disappointed with this Talty bottling. I must have bad bottles if everyone else loves this wine.

Not very good at all. Opened and had less than a glass. Tried it 3 hours later and I think it got worse. Not undrinkable but is that really what you want from a wine?

Very nice DuNah. PnP and was very approachable. I didn't get the Rhone varietals and it really reminded me of the DuNah pinots I've enjoyed in the past. Not sure it's worth the price tag but definitely good.

This was a big disappointment. For shame Talty. The sour fruit and bitterness completely overpower everything else. This drinkable but not what Zin should be or what you expect from Talty. The spice barely makes it through. I have another bottle and have no desire to drink it. Drinks like a $8 bottle.

First Zin from Washington and it had many of the Washington Cab characteristics. If I didn't know it was a Zin, I would have guessed cab/syrah blend. Nothing wrong with the wine but not what I want from Zin.

Distinct heavy pinot from Cali. Really comes out after about an hour. At this price point, I'd probably look elsewhere but certainly enjoyed what I had.
