Carol Shelton Monga Zin 2012
"Very bright pomegranate cherry fruit, brown sugary-caramel oak Fragrant Asian spices—Chinese 5-spice in milk chocolate/cocoa; Mouthfeel is creamy yet tangy, quite drinkable now but will age 10-15 years. Very mouthfilling!We christened the Monga Zin as we stumbled while saying its appellation too many times, probably after having too much of this HUMONGOUS mouthful of fruit and rich milk chocolate." -Winery

Fairly big Carol Shelton zin. Initial impression is like sticking your nose into a bag of switzer's black licorice. Loads of ripe blackberry, more licorice and dark black cherry on the palate. There's a fair amount of acidity that's a bit overpowered by the heat of the alcohol.
