In many ways this is the zin against which all others are judged. And without doubt this is one of the best I can recall. Lovely mix of plums and fruitcake with a deep blackberry brambly influence. Loads of spices and dark chocolate. Yet the balance and effortless length of the palate provide such a refined mouthfeel. I have to say I’m not generally a zin fan, but this one might just change all that. SCORE 96/100 CELLAR 10 years
