    December 1, 2014 - Exactly what I'm looking for in a Zin; big, teeth staining, borderline jammy but still with enough structure and polish to keep it interesting.

    October 28, 2014 - Dark red; rich slightly subdued nose of dark berries; tannic and acidic expression, powerful; a bit "too much" and appearing somewhat unbalanced

    June 29, 2014 - Un grand vin à prix abordable. Tout y est: odeurs et saveurs de petits fruits, date, pruneau, tabac, réglisse et des notes de fumée, le tout dans une texture gourmande. Une semaine plus tard, il tient encore la route. Un défaut: son taux d'alcool à 15,4 %.

    December 15, 2013 - Hot zin that turns out to be a bit muted. Alcohol content really overpowered no matter how much I cooled it down. Remained hot on the second day but with stronger notes of plum.

    November 23, 2013 - This wine is the definition of two things: smooth, and fruit forward. One of the best zins I've had in a while. Soft tannins. Berries on the nose. On the palate, strong hints of black cherry and licorice. Long, peppery finish that contrasts nicely with the overall smoothness. I would highly recommend. Wish I had a few more bottles of this.
