Wine Review: This ruby colored Zin will appeal to readers who enjoy big hearty reds. It opens with a nutty port like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and has nice palate presence. The flavor profile is a black currant with notes of nutmeg, pepper, and soy. The finish is quite dry and its noticeable tannins are quite lengthy. As I mentioned, this wine is pretty substantial. I would pair it with a hearty beef stews on a cold winter’s night. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This York Creek, though rich and structured, is one of the most supple and elegant wines we have made from the vineyard. Enjoyable now, it will continue to develop over the next six to eight years. JO
