(From 2010 Vintage) The Earth, Zin and Fire offers a fully spicy nose with distinct brambly dark red/black fruits tones. On the palate the wine has a soft fruit forward medium body that is rich, ripe and rounded. It provides a velvety soft attack giving way to a firmer spicy finish. Hints of dark cherry and peppery elements are at the forefront while a more baking spice tones come out at the end. The wine is overall generous with its mouth-coating fruit which leads to a clean somewhat abated finish which provides just enough support and framework to keep it from being cloyingly lush.
