What a nice Zin. It’s very forward-fruity. You’ll get off on the endlessly rich blackberry, cherry and boysenberry flavors, spiced up with pepper, tobacco, tobasco and sweet oak. On the other hand, the acids and tannins are dry. Feels just great in the mouth, massaging the palate with soft, creamy tannins.
A terrific Zin, concentrated and focused, with enormous fruit but also possessing the qualities of balance and finesse. All the more surprising given the 15% of alcohol. Huge flavors of berries, tobacco and dark chocolate drink fully dry.
Sleek and elegant, with zippy chocolate, tea, coffee, spice, black cherry and plum flavors that are framed in toasty, sweet oak. The wine is long, lush and ripe on the finish, showing great style.
When Hendry Zin is good, which it usually is, it’s very good, and so it is with this ripe, flashy but balanced wine. Block 7, in particular, is as dependable as Zin gets. It’s so delicious in jammy cherry, blackberry and cocoa flavors, yet dry and crisp, with that sip-me-again quality that quickly empties the bottle.
A rich, lush, round wine that’s quite fruit forward, showing plenty of black cherry, plum, strawberry, chocolate, herb, spice and blueberry flavors. Extremely soft textured, yet structured. A sexy, plush style that’s long on the finish.
After years of 90-plus scores for Block 7 Zin, this wine doesn't rise to the occasion. It's a good wine, with pleasant cherry flavors and rich, dusty tannins, but lacks that extra edge of intensity to merit an excellent score.
Fine complex nose mixes spice, briar, pie cherry, coffee and barnyard. Flavors are pleasant, with plummy fruit, but overall the wine doesn’t have much depth or power. Finishes tannic and a little bitter.
