Broad-shouldered Zin with the usual concentration and power of the Pezzi King Reserve line. I found this wine a little sweeter than the Botticelli Vineyard Zin made by the same crew for Rockpile Vineyards, but with every bit as much intensity. The aromas show deep, dark Zin fruit that reminded me of black raspberry liqueur along with blueberry pie baking in the oven. This is accompanied by spicy oak and a liqueur-like mouth feel. The richness and sweet feel of this wine make it a bit of a hard match for any but the boldest of foods. - HK 2018-03-22
