The Cortina Zin always seems to need a few years after release to open up and show some charm. At age 5 the 2007 Cortina, while still muscular and tightly structured,is coming into its own. Big, deep, brooding core of very earthy dark berry fruit. Slight floral edge lightens the edge somewhat and contributes both elegance and complexity. Ripe, chewy, virile, well-balanced wine that will be excellent for several more years. - HK 2012-07-08
