Smooth and easy-going. I would have liked to see more complexity and boldness from my zins, though.
velvety smooth, great for everyday . good replacement for 2005 Coppola Claret.
Smooth, soft, and well blended. Perhaps too well is blended? The Zinfandel is intense with a strong plum/prune flavor, but the complexity and multi-layering of flavores was missing. Good, but for a Meritage, I like Menage a Trois by Folie a Deux better for its complexity.
