Wine Review: This ruby colored Zin opens with a fragrant and attractive pomegranate bouquet with a hint of red currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy going. The flavor profile is a very tasty gentle red currant with hints of pomegranate, spice, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its fine tannins drift away nicely. This Zin is very food friendly and would pair well with veal marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: In the nose the wine leads with candied black cherry—like a chocolate cherry truffle—and fulfills that promise of lush fruit in the mouth. It coats the mouth with its cherry and raspberry fruit, while the caramel, toffee and spice overtones offer a creamy richness, all balanced by the freshness so inherent to our neighborhood. The liveliness of the wine carries through the long Bing cherry finish. This is a wine to enjoy on the porch at sunset with a nice burger and fresh tomatoes, or maybe some pesto pasta with pine nuts.
