The low 14.1% alcohol level makes this Zin sound wimpy, but it is far from it. Full of mouth-tingling dark berry fruit with nice touches of vanilla and spice. Medium bodied in the mouth but with impressive flavor intensity. Velvety smooth and satisfying from start to finish. From some old Zin vines rediscovered and revived in the Soul Patch Vineyard, more known for Pinot Noir. This wine was a first-rate bargain when purchased in futures several years ago. - HK 2015-10-30
