Drinking beautiful right now. Garnet color but transparent. Strawberries dominate the nose with underlying floral notes and gentle vanilla. Tannins are soft, with a modest mouth feel. Not a lot of structure (may have faded) so I wouldn't leave this on its side too much longer. Best zin in a long time. The strawberry on the nose is infectious. 5+14+16+8=93
