Going from memory on the tasting notes. We had high expectations for the Orin Swift wine and were a bit let down. Pretty high alcohol content masked many of flavors that we like about Zin. Unless we hear that it has gotten better, there are better valued Zin's out there.
Wow, what a mess. After an hour decant and another 30 mins in the glass, nose predominantly of heat and dark fruit. On the palate, the heat does not disappear. It's predominant with dark berries and oak behind it. Very short finish and completely unbalanced. This wine use to be a lot better, but it's definitely on the down slope. Drink up or give away to friends who know nothing about wine.
A fantastic nose of spice and fruit. Some oak and dark cherries. Long taste of dark chocolate, apriot and cedar spice. This Zin is packed of thick flavors and with rather sweet notes. should be kept in cellar for a few more years..
