An excellent bargain Zin. Rustic, earthy, briary Dry Creek mouth feel. Dark purple-colored, full bodied, with forward, somewhat alcoholic nose and flavors of blackberries. Nicely integrated components. Not complex, but for this price a terrific deal -- half or less the cost of many Zins, and superior to most. (H.K.) - WB Team 2000-05-12
