100 Point Rating Guide

96-100 Extraordinary A wine of finesse, complexity, and expression. True to variety and region. Perfect balance of flavors with a long finish.
90-95 Excellent True to variety and region, with terrific complexity and balance. While not a wine for the ages, a superior example.
85-89 Good Meets your expectations, with sound flavors and balance. Might have limited complexity or be short on the palate. A sound wine.
80-84 Average Drinkable, might not have as much varietal character. Simple flavors, no flaws, but nothing special.
75-79 Below Average Might contain one flaw, simple straight-forward flavors, off-balance, unpleasant.
60-74 Undrinkable, Flawed Contains significant flaws. Unpleasant, not commercially acceptable.

Chewy and rich, with big time fruit and notes of cinnamon. Viscous mouthfeel, a solid zin. But as with (all?) zins in general, i get such overwhelming ripe, sweet, and cooked overtones that I feel like i'm having a dessert wine. The finish does come through, swallow and wait - and inside of a few seconds, you do get a pretty big blast of the aforementioned spice and fruit notes.

Typical zin nose with sweet fruity notes. Nice smooth mouthfeel with a decent finish. Probably a goto zin at this price point.
