A solid Zin, but for some reason didn't strike me in this tasting as having the intensity and grip that I'm used to feeling in this wine. Soft in the mouth with a lovely, complex range of flavors ranging among dark berry, licorice, dried flowers, and spice. Not particularly powerful, so it will certainly not overwhelm any foods. Really good Zin; I admit I've been spoiled. - HK 2018-04-30
