Nose is a little hot. Some dark fruits come through but not huge. Nose seems to be missing something. Black cherry and blackberry palate with a slight peppery finish. Problem I have with this wine is that there seems to be this "fake, metallic" taste on the finish. I've tried letting it breathe, I've tried tasting it on day 2 and I've tried a myriad of foods to accompany it (and have surprising found that I can't find anything to pair it with). I had a cheese platter with it when I first opened it and it clashed with every single cheese I tried. I'm not overly impressed with this. It's OK but that's it. I have to drink it as a stand-alone since I can't find a food pairing and all I can say is that it's palatable. There are better zins for less money and this one's pretty cheap if you catch my drift.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Zen of Zin was sourced predominantly from Sonoma County with a selection of fruit brought in from several other premium California winegrowing regions. The rich, luscious mouthfeel, deep garnet color, and lofting aromas can be traced back to the enlightening blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Carignane. Intended to represent the finest qualities of traditional Zinfandel, the wine is ripe and spicy with blackberry jam, chocolate, and toffee flavors. The nose is full of vanilla, plum, and spice. And as the perfect Zinfandel for those seeking something a little different, share a little Zen with prime rib, roast chicken, and laughter. Always laughter.
