    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 90 minutes.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of soapstone, talc, black berries and florals. Flavors of black raspberries and black cherries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink now.

    March 21, 2018 - Impressive zin. Black raspberries, blueberries, and licorice in the nose. Black cherries, blackberries, and some spice in the flavor. Well balanced wine with a medium to long finish.
