The 2007 vintage of this wine was ranked #10 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2008
Wild berry patch aromas and scents of freshly baked bread. Desired varietal markers of raspberries, blackberries and Zin's briary spiciness reflect the excellent 2009 vintage. 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.
