Waited too long to drink. No fruit or spice. Even tho 15.9% alcohol well balanced. I’m going to rummage around for old stuff in basement.

Good for its age. Very subtle and smooth flavors with the Zin zing still apparent. Much better than the previous bottle. Glad it is the last.

This has been cellared from receipt, but, alas, we waited too long for this bottle (penultimate of a case). It is drinkable and you can tell it was wonderful in its hey-day.
