Big in berry and currant fruit, high in alcohol, hard in astringent tannins. Brazen indeed. But you know what? This Zin pulls off its balancing act. It’s a spicy, briary, lusty wine that will pair well with slow-cooked, braised meat dishes, like lamb shanks.
Dry and robust, this Zin has briary, brambly flavors set off by a rich, slightly bitter streak of red currants and tobacco. It’s a full-bodied, tannic wine whose peppery spices will play well against a grilled steak.
