One of our favorite Zins year-in and year-out, and an excellent Zin. But a bit off the mark compared to most of the other excellent Lytton Springs of the 90's. Full-bodied, tasty, jammy fruit, but almost over-ripe in nature: prunes rather than plums. An intersting earthy, spicy, sage-like edge adds to the complexity, but to us it didn't quite make the cut. - WB Team 2000-09-15
