Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of forward fruit and some sweetness as well as some herbal character. There is also a touch of cocoa and espresso, which adds weight and depth. The wine drinks beautifully, but the herbal character is a little too prominent, and the aftertaste is sharp. Drink up. Textbook Howell Mountain Zin, big and full-bodied, this Zin is a little sweet, and lacking a good middle. It offers some plum and woodsy flavors, but is short on a body that provides structure. This Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend shows aromas of red currant, red bell pepper, and clove. The wine is full, fruity, well-balanced, and well-weighty with a spicy, dry finish. Rustic and a little sweet, with cherry pie and raspberry-jalapeño sauce flavors.
