When first opened, this wine reminded me a smidgeon of a really good Cru Beaujolais, with medium body, ripe raspberry fruit, and assertive acidity. With airing the Zin character took over, with a feeling of additional weight and glimpses of darker berry fruits as well as cherry and charcoal notes. Will stand up to big foods without being overwhelming itself. Very fairly priced for the quality. Impressively fresh and lively at age 6. Really good Zin for the price. (Plus it has a great label.) - HK 2012-07-14
