Excellent Zin with the tight (for now) feel of a good Cabernet -- leaner and more structured than the typical Zin. A lot going on in this wine -- stong black pepper, vanilla, an intriguing mixture of spices, with Cab-like cranberry/currant/cherry fruit. An earthy edge that probably reflects the vineyard, which always makes wines like this more interesting. Lingering finish. Still tannic and will probably improve, but already good. - WB Team 2001-01-24
