A wonderful buy in high-quality Zin. This is tasting even better than it did a year or so ago, and in our opinion is superior to earlier vintages which were less than monster-like. Exceedingly plummy/earthy nose and flavor -- classic Paso Robles -- with sumptuous aromas, full mouth feel, and a long finish. Its allspice and pepper background keep the jammy fruit from being remotely cloying. Case-worthy. - WB Team 2001-06-20
