More refined Zin than expected.

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

Let it breathe!

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.

A unique varietal - jammy but not thick

Letting it sit corked overnight led to more nuanced flavors. Not briary like Zin's sometimes get. Good extract and powerful

Young and tantalizing

Slight bouquet and deep dark color in the glass. Fruit forward as it starts well rounds thru the palate. Young intense and improved overnight as the tannins mellowed. A great bttl for the price. I'll wait awhile before opening another and look forward to the improvement

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.

Let it linger

This wine is really 4.5 stars and a sleeper. Let it linger on the palate for the full effect.

Powerful Wine

A very assertive effort. A big wine, needs to breathe for a while to open up. Not much in the way of a nose. A touch of bitterness on the finish; the wine partnered very well with artisan pizza and strong cheeses.
