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.
Must nose, complex dark cherry entry and drying palate, leading to quick finish.
Very fresh, almost no sweetness or cloying/jammy notes
Ha it at Italian restaurant in Germantown
