I’m not a zin drinker by any stretch of the imagination, but took the advice of @ADAM STROMFELD and gave this a shot. The nose is all Smuckers strawberry jam. The palate is juicy bramble berry fruit along with some fruit compote, cedar, and herbs. Light and lively, not your typical heavy zin. Very tasty.

I've been blinded a few times on zin lately and they've thrown me off because I'm expecting high alcohol zin versus all this sub 13.5 zin. This is old school, juicy light peppery a lot of red cherried fruit and red florals. 12.9%. It's hard for me to say whether I like the big fat zin or the primitivo-esque style more. Believe these are from his own clones as well.

Bay Grape wine club. Great, smooth zin. Balanced fruitiness

Perfumed fresh red fruits - crushed raspberry, kumquat, rose petal. Jam is there but not jammy. Showcase in restraint and my favorite type of zin.

Medium weight and definitely old school so it's not overblown or over ripe. Def needs some time or just recant longer. Nose is a little closed but the flavors are bright raspberry with warm baking spices and a strawberry/rhubarb hint. Short finish

Zinny says: I wish more Zin growers would make this old old old school style. 12.9%. Ripe, red berries, subtle forest floor note, spice. So versatile with food. Such pure berry and lightly minerally flavors. Long elegant finish. Did I say 12.9%? It's 12.9%.
