This needs about 30-60 minutes to breathe before drinking. Delicious, black fruits & blueberries up front followed by a medium finish wrapped in vanilla oak flavors. Not too tannic. A nice Zin blend that is drinking well now.
Deep, dark crimson. Masculine nose of conifer, oak, tobacco, pepper, and graphite complement black cherry, cranberry, and pomegranate fruit aromas. Fruity and fresh with a medium body and a smooth texture. Pronounced flavors of blackberries and blueberries segue into a beguiling back note of clove. The minerally finish is intensified with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Develops additional aromas of earth, cedar, cigar box, and a touch of sulfur after a 2-hour decant. Very good to excellent.
Medium to full bodied, dark and brambly, with black raspberry and black cherry fruits, cedar, dried sage, tobacco leaf and hints of dark chocolate and subtle hints of pepper, cinnamon, and clove spice.
