Blueberry, cherry, and spice scents. Smooth start, a bit of tobacco and mocha. Has a tangy, long finish.
Pretty good...pretty good. I thought it was good. :)
Drinks like a better Zin blend than a straight Zin. Strong upfront and finishes with a balance. Has a nice "chewiness" to it that borders on a Cab, but without the harshness of the tannins. I Like this a little more than Ravenswood's sonoma and old vine zins.
Drinks like most $30-40 Zins. I liked this better than Ravenswood's traditional zinfandels. Almost chewy, this wine is well balanced and finishes like it starts-full and juicy without being sweet. This should drink better decanted for 15-30 minutes, and is fully drinkable now, but will only get better with age.
Easy to drink, a little spicy, not as complex a flavor as some zinfandels.
