Pleasant, if somewhat simple wine. Deep, dark color, big bodied, nice aromas of crushed plums. Sweet and spicey ripe fruit that coats the mouth in a nice way. This is one of those pleasant, no fuss wines. Drink up. 84 pts.
You may know Tres Sabores usual release: three zins sold together, each made from the same vineyard but farming and winemaking done by three different winemakers. I was told by Julie Johnson, owner of Tres Sabores, that “Porque no?” was the answer to what to do with the leftover zin -- “Why not” make more wine? Purchased for ~ $18 at the St Helena Farmers Market.
Make Cab, not War.
