Another tasty Zin from Kokomo that's just a tad short of outstanding. Full, briary Dry Creek berry flavors tinged with vanilla and spice. Not nearly the intensity of some of the Kokomo Timbercrest Vineyard Zins I've tried from earlier vintages, but nicely balanced, focused, and pure in the mouth and finish. No hint of sweetness or over-ripeness here, as well as relatively low alcohol, and therefore a better food wine than some of the heavier Zins. This young wine still has a slightly taut edge to it and may be even more enjoyable in a year or two. - HK 2013-07-04
