Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised at affordable prices. It`s dry, crisp in acidity and lightly textured, with pleasant cherry, blackberry, currant and spice flavors. The vineyard is in the heart of the appellation, and the wine shows its warm-climate origins in the glass. Although technically dry, it has a bright, fruity character that`s softened by the addition of Montmorency vanilla and a touch of sweet spice. This blend of Malbec and Syrah is bone dry and austere, with a hard, tight, rather astringent mouthfeel. Still, it has enough fruity volume to serve as a good, sturdy red for immediate drinking. A complex, dark-berry-flavored wine, this is structured, but it also has a good layer of dry tannins.Zenith`s nonvintage cuvée is crisply textured, and it bears very mild tannin.
