Definite crowd pleaser! We've tried this wine on numerous occasions, and it has been a hit each time. Dark, full bodied, and delicious!! The Zin displays some really nice juicy (almost jammy) ripe blackberries, creamy smoothness, delicate tannins, and long finish. Layers of complexity keep you going back for more. Don't be alarmed by its alcohol content (15.1%) either, as its balance is unreal for such a high level! This zinfandel would go excellent with bbq chicken, beef, or just as well without food! Even at about $20, it's an excellent QPR! We don't give out many 5/5's, but this deserves it.
