Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Positives: This easy drinking Zin features light oak, raspberry, dried figs, dates, raisins, plums, chocolate and a hint of leather. Medium+ body, medium tannins, good acidity and the high alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: The 14.5% alcohol.

Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with BBQ ribs.

Interesting Things: This is a great wine to bring to gatherings or to have as your second bottle for the night. This won't disappoint.

Tasted: 26 July 12
