From an old-vine vineyard just off Old Redwood Highway south of Healdsburg. Nicely balanced Zin that's still a year or two from softening up completely. But even in its infancy, it shows good texture and grip in the mouth and a nicely perfumed, if reticent, nose of plums, cherry pie, and flowers. Medium-bodied, still a touch austere, will improve with age. - HK 2017-09-28
