First I must disclose that I bought a lot of this wine for Personal Wine, but I wanted to share this with you because every wine by Ulises I have had have been unbelievable zins...Helen Turley needs to retire!

This zin had just the right amount of mint (tiny amounts) on the nose with some cigar box and leather. On the palate you get a fermented cherry, fig and pomegranate rush followed by a long balanced finish.

While my notes don't sound all that amazing, I think great zins, just like Cab Francs, are hard to find, and when one is good, you load up. This is that case.

Couldn't find this wine available on WINES.COM. Am I missing something?

Its not quite on the market... and we have 100 merchants on Wines.com, most of which are East Coast. Wines.com merchants, even though the feed is free don't quite adopt technology as fast as one would think, even if it makes them more money. You can buy it from Ulises Valdez's website.
