Wow, even if you drink a lot of good wine, sometimes you are blindsided by a wine... this is one of these wines. Exploding with red and dark fruits on the nose and palate. The fruit, tannins and alcohol are superbly integrated and the mouth feel is just simply amazing... such a silky creaminess that you left contemplating the wine licking your teeth and lips long after the long finish. Everything has come together so well with this wine. Each new sip bring new nuances like coca, black pepper, mint and hints of sun dried raisins in addition to the upfront raspberries and blackberries. Amazing wine.
A very big and complex zin. Distinct Eucalyptus and mint on the nose. Mellow tannins. I am sure it will age longer but it is hard to imagine it getting any better. Really good stuff. If only I had more.........
Dark, elegant complex and so smooth. Not your typical zin for sure -I was starting to think this may be getting a bit old for a zin but this surprised me in it's overall presentation. Mike has done a great job with this and I am glad I managed to keep my hands of it up to now. I am thinking this is at it's peak -will probably be good for a few more years so RP's drinking window can be stretched a bit.
