Community Tasting Note

    January 10, 2009 - On the nose: Whoa, stunning fruit, smoke, with light floral overtones. Overall a classic big zin. In the mouth - Bold and smokey, but has considerable depth. High alcohol is buried, which is impressive. There is blackberry, a sweet fruit I can't place, dark spice and smoked mesquite.
    I'd like to revisit this in a another couple of years, but right now it's completely worth a spin. Bold but astute, with complexity not often found in many of today's zins.
    Tried over two hours - alone, with Top Sirloin, mushrooms with fingerling potatoes, and with Smart Puffs (give it a whirl).
