Straightforward, fruit driven zin. Simple aromatics and palate of sweet red/black berry with light highlights of slightly smokey baking spices. There is not much to be said about the structure ... it's very smooth, no real edges, but not a lot of depth either. Very easy to drink and a crowd pleaser. I quite enjoyed it as an alternative to the jammy fruit bomb zins that are typical at this price. Nice to have a few on hand for a casual party.
