Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesAt 15.7% alcohol, this wine has the potential to lose its way to excess, but its balance and its depth of fruit prove the point that it is not ripeness by itself that is the culprit. You will find this one simply loaded with precise, utterly delicious blackberry fruit, and it is so carefully crafted that its alcohol is not intrusive. It is certain to get better with a few years of age, but its immediate appeals are hard to resist.
International Wine CellarDark purple. Powerful dark berry and cherry preserves on the nose, with vanillin oak spice and cured tobacco gaining power with air. Fleshy and ripe, with sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors. Soft tannins gain strength on the long, sweet finish. A lush, weighty and emphatically fruity style of zin that demands spicy or grilled foods, or strong cheeses.
