Medicinal (cough syrup) nose. Garnet colored, somewhat lighter than the typical Zins. The first sip fills the mouth with oily, coffe-bean and cassis flavors, and the wine is intense enough to go well with rich foods, slow-cooked lamb shanks for example. One taster detected an artifical sweetener finish, although I didn't pick up on this. If the length was a bit longer, it would have rated higher. - MJA 2002-12-06
