    December 5, 2012 - This Zin, at 12 years old, still has lots going for it. A nice balance with fruits and spices coming through on the nose and palette. The finish is getting a little light after all these years. Guiseppe Battaglini makes really quality Zins from his estate grapes, some of which are 130 years old.

    November 21, 2012 - Surprisingly, you can still buy this wine from the winery!
    In Appearance, the wine is clear and medium ruby...it has certainly lost some color over the past decade.
    The Nose is clean and developed with medium intensity aromas of cedar, dried fruits, tobacco and earth. The primary characteristics have definitely receded a bit.
    The Palate is dry and medium in body with very soft medium tannins. The alcohol level feels medium+, even though it is listed at %15.5, which shows balance and the acidity is medium. The flavors of medium intense with some good red fruit, like plum and dried cherry. There isn't much spice here and the finish is medium at best.
    Overall, an easy drinking, quaffable wine that most likely peaked a few years ago....which is why I drank this a few weeks after my purchase. A solid wine, but not worth $35. Also, down it as soon as you open it because I won't last long once some O2 hits it.
