I tried this wine at some point in the past, and I didn’t understand what all the hubbub was about. This time, however, when it came into my possession, I was somewhat excited at the prospect of trying it again, years later.
I was pleasantly surprised.
It has a great stand alone flavor, not necessarily bold, although maybe I do want to go there without being too overpowering, yet its not as weak as some of the Zins I’ve had lately. In sum, it has flavor.
I would definitely recommend it for a dinner party, especially in mixed company. It has the character of appealing to those who might prefer Cabs or Merlots exclusively. However, it’s probably a wine drinker’s wine, if that makes sense. Anyway, glad it came across my wine rack again, I am always happy to accept wine “donations.” 🙂
