A pleasant surprise

I thought this might be a fad wine at first. Have some zin and cigar. This wine surprised me. It is good. Very fruity and primary zin. Dirty ruby red in color, fruit forward, medium to full bodied wine. Legs took forever to develpe and then ran slowly. Not dry or over oaked, although there is some oak. Not real active in mouth either; alcohol was will concealed behind fruit. A potent zin with a nose that has staying power. Now second day decanted, some oak and tannins are appearing. Has a bitterness I associate with both zins and malbecs but not a flaw, just characteristic of these grapes. Bouquet did not fade over time either. A nice zin and recommended.

A fruity, medium to full bodied wine. Dirty ruby red in color yet cork not stained deeply. Bouquet of red fruits. Taste is slightly bitter but extracted, a slight touch of oak as well, nothing overdone. Tannins. A little burn but the fruit then takes over. Finish fades in 15-20 seconds but flavor lingers on tongue a good while. This was a fairly good Zin, one I rate favorably against a 2002 Seghesio which remains my favorite.
