A stunningly good wine for its age. Still fruit driven, extremely well balanced. Delicious ripe red currants, dark cherries, strawberries, rich tobacco, and cassis all contribute to a complex aromatic impressions. Rich and slightly sweet (though not unpleasantly so) in the mouth. Stood up excellently to barbecued pork. We've never been particularly fond of late-picked Zin, but this one was top-notch. - HK 2003-05-12
