This is my favorite of the Woodenhead Zins. Extremely rich, yet velvety smooth and with no hard edges or intrusive tannin. Like a liqueur of cherries and plums on top of a deep, dark, spicy berry core. Ever-evolving melange of fruit flavors including cranberry and blackberry. Richness overpowers any sense of heaviness or heat from the alcohol. Just absolutely delicious wine, great with barbecue or pasta. - HK 2011-07-13
