(From 2012 Vintage) Intense ruby red with bright highlights. On the nose, red fruit, spicy and green pepper, nutmeg and licorice. It has sweet, firm tannins that give the body and structure characteristic of the strain. Its finish is nice and long.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesThe Segehsio preference for Zins of high ripeness and substance is again evident here, but the wine's late-harvest bias in no way lessens its sense of well-defined fruit. Its aromas and flavors of blackberries are laced with briary spice, and fruit fights its way through palpable heat at the finish. It is weighty without being too heavy, and it shows tannin enough to argue for a few years in the cellar.
