Principal varietal(s):

The clever label looks like an old Monty Python cartoon of a man with a toilet plunger on his head. And the bottle is sealed by a "Zork," apparently a cross between a zip-lock bag and a cork. But the wine is no laughing matter. This has easily taken over as the best sub-$10 Zin I've ever tasted. Big plummy aromas. Flavors of crushed plums, cherry liqueur, dried flowers. Round and chewy texture, though a bit sharp in the finish. Unbelievable bargain. Bottled by "The Other Guys," a division of Don Sebastiani & Sons. - HK 2007-04-13
