Good Zin, though to our tastes not really superior to the lower priced Rancho Zabacos, which are terrific bargains. This one had an earthy feel to the nose and flavors, which exhibited sun-dried cherry and licorice components with a slight menthol or mint edge. Full-bodied, but somewhat monolithic and without a lot of complexity. Good but not memorable. - WB exec team 2002-07-05
