Nearly identical to Blue Cap Seghesio Zin - just lacking a bit of backbone/tannic structure... its voluptuous but teetering on pliable jammy mess - barely redeemed itself but I’m putting this wine on Double Secret Probation.

Sorry - a bit disappointed. I was sooooo looking forward to tasting this Zin and now I’m pining for the Ridge, Turley or Seghesio (sp?) I passed over. I’m sad to say that this is a soulless wine. History will not remember this Wine. Give me a Gamba any day. Life offers what it can and I guess I should just appreciate. Im going to hunt down a Patagonian Pinot next. EB

I like this a bunch. Disclaimer it arrived at my doorstep uncalled for but so does a bunch of stuff and I don’t bother reviewing. But I love Zin. And even though of late I find myself in the mood for lighter things this full guy, which is pretty hearty, is up my alley. Maybe I should just go WSET/Court Masters (which almost became Court Manatees via autocorrect) to analyze so let us go: to my eye: clear, medium plus ruby with thick enthusiastic (I’d say) tears. Nose: clean, medium intensity aged plums, blueberries and blackberries and some yum yum raisins. Some vanilla. Developing. In my maw: dry, medium acid and medium tannins, alcohol is possibly more than medium plus (double checked it is 15.3 which is over medium plus technically but fuck the juiciness and acid make it mellow), body is medium plus—a bit plush in a bit totally balanced way for me..flavor intensity is medium plus. Actual flavors are all has so much JAMMY raisins, dried cherries, plums and blackberries, tobacco, vanilla, and a whiff of clove. Finish? Actually allllllmost like really full or maybe actually medium plus or... intense? But I’m not sure if that is just that alcohol level burning. Anyway this is a full slightly rough wine. It has lots of stuff I like but it is not quite balanced but I’d get it for a night of sipping for a good value! I wouldn’t review if I didn’t think it was at least gulpable but also appreciable. Get it for a full wine to fill you up.
