Deep ruby with purple hues; aromas of toasty vanilla spice and blueberry compote; full-bodied, spicy, along with flavours of blueberry preserve.
An excellent match with barbeque ribs.
Like many cheap cali zins this is thick and sweet. Plenty of fruit, in a mass-produced, commercial style. Alcohol evident, tannins low to moderate. Drinkable, but only if this sounds good to you. Not my thing.
