Over 3 nights, it was only the last evening that this tasted like a Carlizzle...the first two showed a red, dense, almost goopy wine unyielding in anything I would characterize as a Zin, let alone a Mike Officer product. My guess is just too much homogenized vineyards to note anything distinctive.
Night 3 showed finally some of the minerality, balance and layers I expected...this is 6 years after harvest: it shouldn't be so hard to coax out the goods...thus marked down.
