Nose opens like a menthol mist, suggesting a medicinal substance, with whiffs of ocean spray following, enriched by scents of raisins, prunes, and rose stem, with cauliflower joining sour earthy tones to give bass notes to the combination. Tart and tangy acidity adds zest. Palate opens sour but mellows with time. Caramel, brown sugar, cherry, raisin and prune flavors take the place of tart fruit and menthol as the wine evolves over the first hour. Acidity becomes stronger after one hour, and bitterness eventually overtakes other influences, leaving strong citrus, especially grapefruit, as the dominant surviving taste. This wine struggles valiantly to organize, and has moments of clarity, but falls into disarray over time. Don't save for second day.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
