Superlative Zin that ranked at the top of its flight among a number of other good Zins. Muscular yet refined feel from start to finish. Excellent, rich blackberry fruit with complex and evolving notes of sweet oak, chocolate, and black pepper. Full attack, full midrange, and long finish. It was hard to pick our favorite between this one and the Seghesio Home Ranch, but this one seemed to have that 0.01 extra layer that gave it the edge. - WB Team 2002-09-03
