This Fashauer Vineyard Zin is not the alcoholic behemouth the 2013 was, but it is not far behind it in terms of flavor intensity and sheer pleasure. Reminded me of a rich Sonoma Valley Zin (the Ridge Pagani Ranch comes to mind) with concentrated flavors of dark berry and blueberry fruit, mouth-gripping texture, and delicious spicy nuances. Not so weighty in the mouth as the 2013, but equally satisfying and probably better with food. - HK 2018-02-22
