(2012 Vintage) Offering plenty of Zinny character, it’s dry and brisk in mouth-cleansing acidity, with soft tannins and rich flavors of dusty baking spices, blackberry purée, cherry compote, cola, shaved dark chocolate, red licorice and a savory coating of toasted cedar wood. The addition of a small percentage of Petite Sirah (10%) and Syrah (4%) contributes complexity. A great accompaniment to barbecue, game, roasted chicken, stews and lasagna.
I would disagree with the drinkability rating. I have found it very drinkable. Possibly that might be true of the Jeroboam size I had a great experience with one and an OK experience with another.
tasted at Stoney river good strong strong smell. chose the other wine eos.
nice subtle Zin. Deb brought to Thanksgiving dinner.
