Nose showing slight oxidation and dark rose. Flavors are splendid with a barolo like black tea like flavor, berries, with out the sugar, violets and more dark flowers. Nice long finish. fading on second and third days opened.
P & P'ed. Pretty darn nice wine. Not jammy at all like so many California Zins can be. Has an old world feel to it with a hint of the Cali sun. Blackberries, fresh cut celery, underbrush on nose. Velvety smooth on palate with a little bit of a bitter finish which is nice with this wine. Has evolved quite a bit from last bottle tried 2 years ago. Paired well with spicy Boudin and grilled onions. One of the better zins I have consumed.
