One of several excellent Zins I have recently tasted. Terrific balance, dynamic spiciness and impressive balance, especially in light of the 15% alcohol (which is so integrated as to not be noticeable).

2013 vintage. Nice nose with rich red fruits and fresh oak. Forward wine, jammy with descent complexity. Hides the high alcohol well. Crowd pleaser.

Strong purple grape (shocking, I know), pretty dry, hints of cinnamon, dates.

Jammy. it's wine. Nothing To be mad about,nothing to write home about neither. Cheers. Slight tabacci on the nose. Peppery for a zin. Long finish. My initial notes fleet me.
