This is an old school take on Zin. Don't expect a full throttle purple-fruit style. It took a bit of calibration, and then was enjoyable. Ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries and cherries with a bit of pepper. Medium bodied. No tannins. On the palate, nice easy drinking. Cherries and black cherries with a slight bramble note. No noticeable alcohol. This is a nice wine for drinking outside on the deck. It will work well with a burger or pizza.
