Winemaker's Notes:

Deep blackberry fruit and big spice plus black pepper, a touch of chocolate and cola in the oak contribution. Richly textured in mouth, good structure for aging, long black fruit finish.

What A Great Wine! Dark ruby in color. On the nose, cherry with a hint of white pepper. In the mouth, raspberry with a hint of cola. Very well structured with a long berry finish. Carol Shelton knows how to make a good Zin!
