I'm honored to have a Zin from this fine producer named after moi. Brite med ruby. Loads of berry fruit, some spiciness and a touch of vanilla on the nose. In the mouth all come over and the 16% alc isn't noticiced at all. Tongue-coating fruit but balanced in an atypical zin way. Far more claret-like than zin-blaster. Was perfect with the Chicken-Turkey/basil/feta sausages. Likable juice. 88. Part of the 05 shipment.16% alc. WW

Agree with ww all the way. Had a half bottle tonight with sauteed marinated beef tips, polenta, and green beans almondine. Excellante!!! The other half tomorrow after the Barbera.
