A 15 year old Turley red zin - ready to go! This was unctuous and super dense with magical lift and minerality. Not super complex but yet so pleasing, and unlike so many American wines, this actually complimented the food.
Not going to give it a score because we were drinking four different Zins and I was just making very casual notes. This has some candied fruit, a glycerol feel to it, and a nice amount of acidity. Not the fruit bomb you might expect. Liked it quite a bit, but it's not necessarily as rich or structured as some other favorite Zins.
Thanks to Grant & Ellen for bringing this treat to the Kanter's BBQ. Wonderfully in its drinkability window. Not as big or beasty as a younger zin, but nicely fruity, and cherry-like, with hints of its early size. Paired great with the Texas lip smackin BBQ. Zin & BBQ -- the perfect match.
