Brawny just begins to describe this Zin. It’s dry, tannic and full bodied, with powerful wild berry, currant, tobacco and spice flavors that finish in a reprise of tannic bitterness. Nothing shy about this born companion to barbecued ribs.
This is a label from Weibel. With 12% Syrah, it’s a soft, simple wine, with spicy, candied flavors of cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Needs greater acidic structure, but okay for everyday fare.
