This is an incredible zin. Very sweet up front, but turns spicy and complex immediately. Finish seems to go on forever. Very deserving of the $20-30 price tag.

Dug this one out of the cellar. Nose still has lots of fruit, although with a bit of a jammy medicinal note and some raisining. On the palate, there's a surprising amount of structure - lively acidity, some tannins, and only a medium body. The fruit is definitely holding on here, although it's starting to get some hints of secondary flavors. The finish has a burnt tobacco thing going on. The alcohol is definitely a little harsh, but I suppose that comes with the territory. All in all, definitely an impressive showing for a zin that's almost a decade old!Update: still great on the second night!

Winemaker's Notes:

This beautiful, extracted wine shows a bouquet of smoky plums and black currants with elements of cocoa and vanilla. The ripe, fat black cherry flavors are punctuated with hints of smoked bacon and Asian spice. This wine should age well for 5-10 years, but will certainly reward earlier consumption. This wine will go great with all things off the grill, from ribs to burgers and steaks.
