I love how well Mike Officer made Zins in the difficult 2011 vintage.  Purple in color.  The nose is great with raspberries, black raspberries, brambles and slight spice.  On the palate, the texture is amazing.  Juicy acidity.  Good fruit.  The kinf of wine that is so delicious one can't help emptying the bottle quickly.  I know these last longer than people might think, but I just can't keep from opening them.

Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
