A very different wine compared to the outstanding 2007. The 2008 is much lighter in the mouth and has 1.4% less alcohol. Slightly green, sappy cherry and plum flavors and a texture reminiscent of Pinot Noir. In fact, I would have identified it as Pinot in a blind tasting. Pleasant enough Zin, just doesn't hold a candle to the 2007. - HK 2012-11-21
