Large-scaled, liqueur-like Zin that butts up against over-ripeness without going over the limit. Classic, crunchy Russian River feel with lots of briary, spicy dark currant, black raspberry, sweet cranberry fruit. Earthy and rich in the mouth and finish but with some alcoholic heat. A perfect match for big barbecued meats or cheese; not so much for veal piccata. - HK 2011-05-24
