This well-priced Zin has the nicely rounded mouth feel of a higher priced wine, though it lacks the flavor density and extraction to rate a higher score. Oak, licorice, and dark berries are displayed in the nose and flavors, though a straw/vegetal component sneaks into the midrange. The tannins are in line to give an overall balanced feel to the wine. Not bad for an everyday Zin. - WB team 2003-04-30
