Light toast Vanilla, sage, coffee and butterscotch on the nose. First a palate of black cherry, rhubarb, blueberry, and caramel apple juice; followed by a well-balanced mid palate leading to a lingering finish.

Tasting Notes
"Concentrated strawberry, black cherry, cinnamon-laced latte, licorice and mocha converge in an intriguing and beautiful nose from this legendary Zin winery. The structure is immediately apparent on the palate, framing smoked strawberry, oregano and dill flavors. It’s full of plush, ripe fruit, but seemingly bone dry." — Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast
Ratings
"Medium to medium-dark ruby; forward, ripe, intense, spicy, briary, blackberry and blueberry fruit aroma; medium-full to full body; big, supple, plummy, dark fruit flavors with jammy richness" - California Grapevine
