More refined Zin than expected.

Not as spicy, but more classy, refined, controlled and versatile. Enjoyed every drop. Glad we got the case!

first impression was a little tight, but it kept expanding as it sat open in the glass. Rich dark color, great extract. Acids and tannins in balance. Mouvedre (Mataro) can be a bit hard and this at first seemed biting and chiseled when first opened, but once it had an hour to breathe it had softened up, exposed a mouthful of complex flavors,and was really drinking beautifully. A steal at $21 at the 6-pack pricing.

Aroma includes raspberry, vanilla, some floral. Taste is darker fruit - blackberry, plum, black cherry. Very nice balance - fruity, but not too sweet; plenty of tannins, but not overpowering. Full, round finish, not unlike a good Cab. It did improve with time in the glass. After 90 minutes or so, it was very mellow and didn't need the accompaniment of food. Looking forward to trying the other bottles over the next few years.
