Another delicious Old Vines Zin from St. Francis. Most tasters rated it midway between the outstanding '97 and excellent '98. This wine seems more restrained in its oak dosage and power level than either the '97 or '98, with more elegance and a velvety texture. It's a full-bodied wine with a rich dark cherry and plum flavor profile that hides the high alcohol level nicely. Fairly priced, too. - WB Team 2001-08-01
