This is a delicious Zin, and I didn't find that it suffered much when compared to some of the other Pezzi King single-vineyard Zins retailing for twice (or more) the price. Aromas and flavors are highlighted by concentrated dried cherry and blackberry pie notes; texture shows classic Dry Creek chewiness in the mouth. Full of life and intensity, this wine will handle hefty BBQ, no problem. Must be from younger vines; otherwise I don't understand the price differential, though I'm certainly happy of it. - HK 2017-06-09
