Sweet almost perfume-like edge in the bouquet with spice, slight mint and cedar with wild berry fruit and a touch of cherry.

Palate–Nice big Zin flavors with a bit of a harsh foundation, rustic structure, good Zin qualities but a tad hot.

I am a bit surprised that this 2013 Zin is as hot as it is. Figure around $15 which is OK but you can find others for the same or less (Gnarly Head); It’s your call!
