Creamy cherry fruit is joined by a nice spicy note on the nose offering just a hint of wood and a little blueberry. Full and fruity in the mouth delivering clear black berry fruit with soft tannins though this turns a touch bitter and extracted on the backend, then a little creamy on the raw, modest finish. Perhaps a bit young. Might improve. 87pts

Nice blend of fruit--raspberries, plums. Maybe just a tad fruitier than I prefer, but this will appeal to many. Very tame tannin and very light on the acid suggests to me that this is a drink-it-now.

Red fruit and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Red fruit on the palate with some spice and balancing acid. Soft tannins and a smooth finish. The second day the wine developed a bit more fruit and the tannins softened. I upgraded my star count a half point. Really nice wine.

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.
