Simple and rubbery on the nose, while the palate offers an appealing sweet impression, soft tannins and short finish....

Oh Clos Du Val, you and your mood swings. From greatness to mediocrity and all with the same pretty brown labels.

This is simply not that good. Sharp, hot nose. Sweet and hot on the palate, as Zins are often meant to be, but in this case it just tasted out of balance. Drinkable, but unremarkable on all levels and certainly over priced. Buy a Ravenswood or an old vine Cline instead. they're cheaper and better.
