Much richer and fuller than the 2005 Russian River Zin, the 2006 returns to the full-bodied, ripe, in-your-face fruit density we've loved in earlier vintages. Dense raspberry and candied cranberry fruit, exotic spices, seamless mouth feel, nice finish. The price is edging into the painful range, but no more so than a lot of the other Zins we've enjoyed over the years. - HK 2009-06-15
