    May 8, 2017 - The best Zin -- if you can find it

  • Villa D Likes this wine: 98 points

    March 3, 2017 - this 2009 old vine Zin from Deerfield Ranch is probably one of the best zins we have ever tasted. Unfortunately we (supposedly) bought the last case. But understand there might be a barrel available as of last year. My wife has been searching for a comparable zin. On our last visit to wine country we were especially out to find the best Zin. We tasted about 15 different old vine zins, -- found may be a couple but none compared to this 2009 Garcia vineyard. if you have this wine please enjoy it as much as we do. Cheers.

    January 22, 2017 - This 2009 is fantastic -- a zin that is the best that I have had the pleasure to taste. This is my wife's favorite -- unfortunately we bought the last case (so I'm told). What sets this zin apart is the dark chocolate, hint of coffee and a overall smooth finish. I know Zins are not very expensive but with this we get to stun our dinner guests with a wow that they don't expect. Cheers!

    December 11, 2015 - Funky Jammy chocolate nose
    Sweet milk chocolate with some spice. Very smooth. Very nice. Very complex. Touch of sweetness.

    November 23, 2015 - You have to like a modern style for this wine, and if you do, there is much to love. The wine is big but balanced, round but not flabby, and although it tastes a tad manipulated to me, the very long candied apple finish was terrific. Careful what you drink it with, or it will overwhelm.
