There are certain stores that I got into and rarely get a
bad recommendation in regards to wines for me, and in this
case, the recommendation was for someone else, but I wound
up picking up two of the bottles anyway.
While this Zin is not full-bodied, and the oak is a
little pronounced, it's alcohol content more than makes up
for its deficiencies. The taste is more cherry than
anything else, with leather and oak accents; there is some
slight raspberry as well, but I get more tart then I would
normally like. However, I believe that this bottle only ran
me about $7.
