Absolutely delicious Shiraz. Big nose of semisweet chocolate, raspberries and sweet vanilla extract. Smooth as glass, mouth-coating flavors of chocolate-covered dark cherries. Layers of flavor and a very long finish. It's hard to believe this wine will improve since it's so tasty now. Pricey, though less expensive than most of the boutique Zins and better than most of them. - WB Team 2001-03-14
