Some in the tasting group really liked this wine; others felt it was a bit clumsy and inferior to the regular Storr's Zin. A late-bottled wine with flavors and feel quite similar to port. Mouth-coating raisin, blackberry, licorice, and white chocolate flavors. For such a full mouth feel, remarkably closed nose at this point. Over time the wine's flavors seemed overcome by its sweetness. A wine to sip with cheese rather than enjoy with a meal, and one can purchase a couple of excellent non-vintage ports for the price of this one. - WB Team 2000-11-08
