Straightforward but decent zin, with peppery notes over a base of red fruit, with a touch of earthiness. Not overly complex, but well balanced. Read more

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Intensely aromatic and popping with black pepper tinged slightly leathery and smoky wild cherry fruit. There’s even a touch of mushroom and forest floor earthiness lurking in the background on the nose. Soft and mouth filling though not terribly weighty with a really gentle, supple character making this very easy drinking. There’s plenty of sweet wild cherry fruit here and a touch of sautéed herbs adding a touch of complexity. 89pts

Juicy, peppery aromas and succulent flavors make this a very enjoyable zin. There's a lot of tar, a great chewiness to the tannins, and just the slightest bit of medicine. A fun bottle of wine at a great price.
