(15.7% alcohol; from a vineyard originally planted in the 1860s, then replanted in the 1880s): Dark red. Musky nut skin dominates the nose. Plush, expansive and seamless but lacking the verve of most of the other 2009 zins from Robert Biale; seems overripe. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a bit of free-floating acidity. I'd consume this in the short term.
