Blueberry, This is clear and mineral on the nose, chalky earthy, and balsamic with wild berry and blueberry aromas. On the palate this is relatively light and elegant with fresh, gorgeous red currant, sour cherry and blueberry flavors. It’s a gorgeous wine, lively and bright with a fine inherent spice note leading to a clear, long pure fruit finish. So transparent and detailed for a wine this size. 94pts

Lotsa Zin notes on the nose--brambly. Very pleasant initial palate sensation--neutral on the tip of the tongue, but fruit emerges around the edges, blackberry and, maybe, plum. Tannin enough to suggest that it would benefit from aging, but very pleasant now. US$19.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana

Briary nose with lots of sage. Tad stemmy and woody. Flavors of strawberry and black cherry with pepper and spice box. Medium to full bodied, dense and rustic style. Zesty, but well balanced. Rich fruit without being jammy. 90 pts. 12/29/12

Wild berry patch aromas and scents of freshly baked bread. Desired varietal markers of raspberries, blackberries and Zin's briary spiciness reflect in this wine. Zin's ever-present acidity enhances the finish and fine, dusty tannins add complexity, mouthfeel and structure. Layered nuances of flavor with cracked pepper, tilled soil and a hint of creamy oak. Characteristic synergy of components - balanced and elegantly structured.
