International Wine Cellar(2006 Vintage) Opaque ruby. Roomfilling bouquet offers kirsch, blackberry, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and dried flowers. Deeply concentrated red and dark berry compote flavors coat the palate and are gently framed by soft tannins. Picks up bitter chocolate and candied licorice on the long, weighty finish. There's nothing shy about this zin, which I'd serve with strongly flavored foods, even ripe or blue cheeses.
