Wine Review: This winery does not produce much wine, but what they do produce we have been impressed with. This ruby colored Zin opens with an attractive and aromatic boysenberry like bouquet with a hint of spice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, silky, soft, and balanced with tasty light boysenberry jam flavors. The finish is dry and its mild tannins drift off so pleasantly. This is a very elegant Zin which is typical for the 2005 vintage. We would pair it with pulled pork sandwich. Readers interested in this wine can email John at johnkuno@verizon.net. Enjoy – Ken
