Deep ruby toward purple with medium plus optical density with slowly forming, clear, medium width tears. Medium plus intensity nose with excellent complexity along with underlying elegance. Aromas of cherry pit, brambles, plum, dark berries, and some aromatic tarry forest floor. Medium acidity, full bodied, and dry on the palate with tannins that are pretty much melted away. Dense flavours of red and black fruits on the attack,with a nice full and savoury mid-palate that maintains the fruit, but starts to bring in some spices and earth. Finishes long, with lingering pipe tobacco and black pepper and not much trace of alcohol. Very good example of an elegant Zin that can reveal layers of delicious flavours that should be savoured. Seems to be in a very good window now, with a nice balance of freshness and elegance.
