Sensational Zin (as it had better be for $42 a bottle!). Outstanding density and rich, mouth-coating flavors. Very soft and drinkable now -- in fact we wouldn't recommend holding this one at all. A fruit-dominated delight -- jammy plums, dark berries, smoke, roasted meat. Lots of sweet oak in the perfume. Long, long finish. Great stuff, but several standard deviations outside our price target. - WB Team 2004-07-23
