This Barbera has muscular, robust and tangy flavors of dark plum and blackberry, with a finish that’s distinctly smoky, akin to pipe tobacco. Enjoy this with a host of hearty foods, ranging from pasta to smoked meats.
Pretty good price for a polished, fairly complex Zin. The wine’s a little sweet, but with just enough tannins and acids to make it balanced. That lets the palate appreciate the ripe red berry, cocoa, licorice and spice flavors.
