Tasted with the '98 Sonoma Station and Paso Robles Zins. The most "serious" of the three Zins tasted. Darker colored than the Sonoma Station, heavier mouth feel, longer finish. But less forward at this stage, and with less obvious fruit and more tannin. Some chocolate in the mid-range. May actually benefit from another year or so of age, but a pleasure already. - WB Team 2000-05-03
