Good though not memorable Zin, a good buy. Alcoholic nose, a bit raw overall, with not quite enough fruit and intensity to cover the alcohol. Clean nose dominated by tart cherries. Aggressively alcoholic in the mouth, but with agreeable red fruit flavors. Would be rated higher if they could have pumped some more fruit into the alcoholic mix. Somewhat medicinal (though not unpleasantly so) with a strong coffee finish. - WB exec team 2002-07-14
