This is a nice Zin that takes its foot off the gas just a bit in this vintage. Purple in color with some ruby swirls. The nose has raspberries, slight bramble and spice. Medium bodied. 14.8% ABV. On the palate, raspberries with some underlying char and a bit of black pepper. Nice finish. This is the type of Zin that should age pretty well. Drink over the next ten to twelve years. This is probably better with food; pizza or a burger are nice choices.
