With Beef Tenderloin steak, roasted vegetables. Crimson, touch of brick at the rim. Red fruit nose (raspberry) with touch of black pepper. Tannin/acid balance good, with a nice fruity touch. Good finish. Call it a very good wine - last of this vintage in the cellar.
With grilled New York strip steak, crispy salt & vinegar potatoes, and sautéed pea pods. Crimson, almost purple, dark and almost (but not quite) opaque. Dark plum nose with a touch of black pepper, earthy. Dry, moderate tannin, a touch of acid, medium body (almost hearty). This wine was not at all afraid of the steak. Not a light/bright Zin, almost like a big Syrah.
