Wine Review: In our recent Zin tasting, this wine was a close second place finisher. This wine is really a red blend, but is does have 48% Zin in it so we allowed it be entered. Boy are we glad we did. This dark red/maroon wine has a nice mild berry bouquet. One taster sensed some plum aromas. On the palate, the wine is smooth and nicely balanced. The flavors are nice and complex. The finish is quite lengthy and dry. Enjoy - KWGTP
