Another excellent single-vineyard Sonoma Zin from Gallo of Sonoma. From 100 year old vines in Alexander Valley, this wine has a forward, cherry/plum/earth nose, with full-bodied, briary flavors of tart dark cherries, plums, and vanilla. Good finish, too. Purchased in a restaurant for $32, this is probably less than $18 retail -- a steal at that price, if you can find it. - WB Team 2001-06-17
