Dry, medium-bodied Zin, i.e. made of the same grape as Primitivo in Italy. Very easy to drink but nothing exceptional. Tasted January 2013.

A fairly monotone but not unpleasant zin. Cassis nose, a bit sulfurous at first. Fruit forward palate of dark cherry and some moderate spice. Medium-full bodied, decent acidity, short finish with some residual heat.
