Lots of cola character on the nose with licorice, old leather and bitter cocoa top notes. Big and mouth-filling if a touch soft with a nice bed of tannins that are austere yet are currently cloaked in masses of ripe fruit. There's a nice spicy edge to this that offsets the black cherry/black plum fruit a bit and lends a slightly medicinal tone to the palate with late-to-pop herbal brambly notes adding additional complexity. The heat burns a touch on the finish that reverts back to a more cola-scented flavor. Big if a touch rustic and clumsy. 87pts

I would never guess this was a zin in a blind tasting. Not creamy or smooth, more like a really nice merlot. i would like to try this a few years from now when it really settles in. Still great to drink now though. Nice change of pace.

Delicious, good balance. Jammy with nice tastes of currants, cherry bits of vanilla and a little bit of pepper. Big taste for a fair price.
