90 points. Dark chocolate and coffee beans dominate the aroma. Subtle violet tones that seem to be a trademark of this winery’s Zins, show through briefly before moving into deep brambly tones and a hint of jamminess. There is a faintly smoky quality to this wine, almost reminiscent of burnt rubber following a spin in the glass that is very intriguing. Dark raspberry, lilac and violets introduce the palate, in an almost Mourvedre-like style. Rose wood, leather, a mixed spices mingle with soil, dark chocolate, coffee beans, and a black currant tone that lingers long into the finish. This is a very dark, deep, and complex wine, with tons of fleeting subtleties that give it a very multi-dimensional quality. The flavors are nicely layered and the structure is harmonious, with well integrated fruit and tannins.
