Aaron:  This zin has a chunky, thick smell of vanilla but almost more like what’s found on a whiskey nose.  Strawberry and black grapes are doused in brown sugar and underscored with dark redwood.  This is a rich and full wine with good flavor.  it’s not weak but also not harsh, making it perfectly balanced for my tastes and good for food pairing.  91 points

Teri: For those who like their red wines on the fuller side, this is a good bottle for you. This old vine zin has a dark mulberry oaky nose followed by a medium bodied wine with flavors of woody dark cherry and blackberry. The tannins are smooth and flavors are bold but the wine is still silky and easy to drink. This bottle would stand up to hearty meat and your heavy flavored dishes. 88 points
