This is a massive Zin that delivers (as a lot of wannabe's don't) on the promise of "old-vine" density and flavor. Huge nose of ripe blackberry, raspberry, vanilla, spicy oak. Teeth-staining richness of pure Zin fruit in the mouth that has none of the objectionable raisiny edge that sometimes creeps into Zins of this type. Not to be served with chicken or veal - stick with the barbecued slab of beef! - WB Team 2005-10-23
