In a quick whim, I pulled this and the 09 to take a brunch. Side by side, they are indeed different. The 2008 is more red fruited while the 2009 is darker. Both had acidity and the alcs were well managed with the 2008 seeming like it might age better, given the other notes like loam and some structure. The 2009 was more opulent and riper toned than the 2008, too. I supposed it depends on what you want in your Zin both but drank very well.
