Delicious now but I probably should have waited. Has more depth than their bottles labeled as Zin. The edge of the forwardness of zin is replaced by a darker brooding element reminiscent of petite sirah or older syrah. Good stuff.
Solid QPR. I've never been much of a merlot drinker (no, I have yet to watch Sideways all the way through) but I tasted this at the winery and liked it and grabbed a few bottles. Good fruit without being jammy and a little bit of a finish - something I usually find missing in merlot.
