Tasting Notes: A deep ruby, inky colour, this full-bodied Zin plays a medley of lovely fruity notes, but the song becomes a little repetitive. Youthful aromas of blueberry jam, pepper and cherries on the nose followed by flavours of vanilla, raisins and more pepper and blueberry jam on the palate. There's a whole lot of jam going on here, however, I would still call this wine well-balanced as the sticky fruit characters balance the very high alcohol. Medium acidity and tannins round out the long..., you guessed it, jammy finish.
This wine will need an accompaniment of cheesy, tomato-sauce lasagna to successfully carry a tune. Drink now. - LC
