The usual silky smooth and flavorful Morelli Zin, though for whatever reason I found the '09 a bit less intense and lively than the '08. It still has that enticing Pinot-like elegance and refinement, though, with tasty dark cherry and raspberry fruit and excellent balance and length. Very good Zin with food as it is neither over-ripe nor overly high in alchohol. - HK 2012-06-14
