USA | 2018
(4 customer reviews)

£9.50 a bottle

Aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak. Fantastic value everyday drinking.

  1. Paul Robinson

    As a fan of US “Zin’s” I find many of them just too full of alcohol (14.5%+). This lovely example misses nothing for being a much more drinkable 13.5%. A good, full mouthfeel with plenty of richness and the smooth rich fruitiness I would expect. The only problem is just how easily it slides down the throat!

  2. NIGEL

    What a fantastic Zin- its is very drinkable- smooth and rounded with plenty of fruit- will be buying again and great value

  3. Will

    This is a great wine. So tasty and fruity and thoroughly enjoyed the bottle. So much so, I’m here again buying another one! Don’t miss this one off your lists to try!

    We first tried this at Joe Allen’s in London and enjoyed it’s depth and easy drinking style. I just had to try to find a supplier after that and now buy it regularly.
