The aromas are filled with an intriguing complexity of spice and dark berry fruit with subtle hints of sweet molasses and ripe blackberry. This invitation to the first taste is greeted with a boldness of mountain-grown aspects and intensity. Dark cherry, plum, black raspberry and Siskiyou berry fruit envelope the senses on the entry, evening out into a purity of black cherry throughout the mid-palate. Medium to full-bodied, this Zin embraces its rustic heritage, finishing with a slight floral note, the classic earthiness of the region, and the youthful yet approachable tannins one expects from older vineyards. There is no doubt that this wine was grown in the higher elevations, and there is no doubt that the essence of El Dorado is experienced with every sip. This is terroir in a glass!
This region of the country is known all over the world for its remarkable Mediterranean climate that produces some of the best wines around.
