This is a monster Zin, with hugely extracted aromas and flavors of super-ripe cherries, blueberries, blackberries, earth, tar, licorce, and mint. Almost over the top even to us deranged big-Zin lovers. The weird thing is, even in its current testosterone-crazed youth, it has a touch of elegance to it that sneaks through the power and alcohol. It would be great to be able to taste this again in a few years, but of course at its hefty price level that isn't going to happen. Thanks to PVM for sharing this behemoth. - WB Team 2006-04-08
