Yum. All sin, all the time. The black pepper and raspberries are there but there is a floral component to this wine that is hard to compare to any other zin. The palate is powerful but it doesn't feel dense. Great zin at this age.
This wine was even better than I had expected. The bouquet was deeply floral, and the wine a medium bodied ruby. It carried strawberry / raspberry and pepper. The pepper seemed to have dissipated on the 2nd day. There was good depth to the wine. For such a high alcohol content (16.1%) it was well hidden.
