Ruby red and purple in hue, this wine has aromas of black pepper,
boysenberry, clove, cinnamon and allspice. The red fruit flavors fill
the palate, dominated by raspberry, red cherry and pomegranate,
complemented by hints of nutmeg and rosemary for a classic varietal
character. Soft, supple tannins create a firm, yet lush mouthfeel.
With its bright fruit-forward flavor profile and spicy palate, this
wine is truly a "Zinny" Zin. Though this wine is created for immediate
enjoyment, it will age gracefully for 2-3 years.
Big & Bold
I ordered this wine after tasting it at one of my favorite restaraunts in St. Louis. Very full bodied and smooth.
Earthy & Spicy
Don't know whether it's the vintage or the bottle, but our first Wine.com order was the 2006 version of this wine, and we loved it. It was bright and spicy but still very rich. This order, though, is not the same: it's fizzy when you open it and needs a long time to open up at all. When it's okay to drink, it it's just ok.
