Community Tasting Note

    November 9, 2008 - Little early to be trying this, but gave it a shot.
    On the nose the fruit - a variety of red and darks - come through cleanly despite the higher alcohol content and the early age. Hay and spices are in the background. Not as much depth here as some other Biales, but a great representation of a true zin
    On the palate it's surprisingly in balance for the age, and the nose does not deceive, this is fruit-forward, big time zin.
    This is another example of what I would call a creamy zin - along the lines of a Rafanelli or Outpost.
    There are better QPRs out there, but this is a great zin that I look forwarding to trying over the next 4-5 yrs.
