Absolutely way too young, but still fantastic. Initial nose was a bit much. It was a chocolaty, milky oak nose with blueberries and licorice. That dissipated a bit and began to show some lavender components as well as dark cherry. Full bodied wine with black cherry and a touch of oak coming through on the palate. Finish was med+ in length with some oak spice peaking through at the end. Tannins were fully present during the finish and took some time to calm down. I think in a few more years this will settle in nicely.
This was absolutely wonderful. Deep crimson color to it. Upon first opening, nose was predominant with dark berries, black pepper, caramel, brown sugar and oak. Over time it settled down so the oak was less predominant. Excellent balance, silky smooth. Nice long finish with a spicy kick at the end. Great QPR Zin.
Bought as futures a few years ago and it's absolutely starting to come around now. Deep dark color all the way to the rim. Nose of black currant, plum, earth and chocolate. Medium bodied on the palate and a joy to drink. Beautiful balance and structure to this. Will hold for a few more years, but is an absolute joy to drink now.
