Medium minus ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
A perfect second bottle to have on hand.
Positives: A light style Zin featuring cedar, raisins, figs, blueberry, blackberry, blackcurrants, prunes, black cherry, Dr. Pepper and chocolate. Medium to medium minus body, medium tannins, good acidity, average length and the alcohol is well integrated.
Drink now on its own or pair it with honey BBQ ribs.
