    August 27, 2011 - Very nice, after a decade. Still somewhat sweet, but smooth.

    October 14, 2010 - This was opened last Saturday at a BBQ off-line. It was rich with good acidity then. But I stuck about 1/2 bottle in the fridge and forgot about it til today, Thursday. Wasn't expecting much, but this may even be better today than it was when first opened. It's showing a little age, but there is still loads of red fruit, acidity and good tannic structure and the hint of funk on the bottle on Saturday is gone gone gone. I had it with meatloaf, and it was excellent. Really terrific wine each time I've had it.

    October 9, 2010 - -- tasted a single glass non-blind over approx. 15 min. --

    Orange fruit on the nose. Red fruits and a bit of funk on the palate. Hides its 15.6% alc. very well. One of the most distinctive wines on the table this evening. I liked this a lot. jdietz's bottle.

    July 11, 2009 - Ok, after having 2 bottles that seemed very young, I got smart and let this sit over night. What a difference! Who would think that a 9 year old Zin could still be on the upswing, but this one is. Amazing aromatics of red fruit and spice that left me very happy with my nose in the glass. Complex flavors, with mostly red fruit, but some darkness. Terrific bottle. 4.0
