At nine years of age this was a beauty of a Zin that has kept its plum and spice nature while developing other real robust flavours that made it more than a pleasure to drink - at 14.5% it is no shrinking violet of a wine ... it too was consumed with gusto.
A bit passed its prime. Wish we had drunk a year ago. Muted fruit on the nose; blue berries and some cedar. Palate had nice fruit, but likewise muted compared to a newer Zin. Laked freshness and acidity. I feel that it would have been very enjoyable 12-24 months ago. Paired well with short ribs.
