Still young and tight, but great potential. Medium finish with spicy peppery cherry notes, just like I remembered from the tasting room. Read more

This is bretty on the nose but it just adds a layer of complexity to the aromatics that express leather, soil, spice, red fruits supported by a bit of VA with top notes of cinnamon, and cooling hints of mint. On the palate this is a bit lean with a hard, taut feel to it. While it shows lots of promise in a nicely extracted style the finish is fatally marred by a metallic bitterness that lasts far too long. 78pts

Very nice, well-balanced zin. Blackberry and cherry on the palate with leather and spices and a peppery kick. Some coffee notes in the background. Delicious with braised oxtail.
