Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of light pepper notes, rich plums and raspberries. Flavors of raspberries, plums and mixed berries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.
Nose: Red fruited aromas w/ assorted herbs, spice, earth, flowers and cement (the last two qualities new since last notes). Palate: Still the high toned black cherry flavors (like last notes on 4/9/14) but more evolved and balanced. Additive saline qualities and as with the last bottle not a trace of the 16.3% alcohol showing. This last bottle is quite elegant and is at peak IMO. Drinking beautifully and a stellar Zin!
Popped and poured and drank over two days. Darkly fruited and Briary. Carries 16.3° of alcohol with incredible balance . Great after dinner drink but I wouldn't drink this wine with food. Didn't involve much over two days. Drink now.
