Love this zin - really "fruit-forward" and "jammy" as they say - in other words, slightly sweet which to my taste is bang-on. Decant this for about 10 minutes to really bring out the blackberry/dark cherry/raspberry fruit and body. This pairs really well with robust foods or for just kicking back on the patio. Great intro zin for the unfamiliar.
