WOW ..... This was, to me, a FANTASTIC QPR bottle. << $19.38 USD(tx/inc) >> Big flavor. Can a Zin be a fruit bomb? This had a taste, as some may say, of "jammy" fruit. The nose kinda grabbed me like the fruit selection of a monster "farmer's market", on a nice summer day. Very concentrated, dark berry flavors. There were soft, but solid tannins, that made this taste mature for a very young wine. The very light oak helped too, I believe. I sorta think that if they jacked around w/ this wine, they could make a great Zin Port out of it. It's moderately long finish had some subdued caramel flavor. Once again, I think this added to it's seemingly mature taste. Anyway, I'm sure this would go good w/ food. I have very little clue about cellaring, but I gotta believe that some time would do this wine a great service. Not at all that it doesn't drink very well now. My only complaint is that I let my wife drink it w/ dinner, and I waited for after and got much less of it's enjoyment.

Enjoyed a bottle of this tonight w/ Mrs.S while watching Sideways. The QPR value is almost doubled this time, since I only paid $10.99. It once again had the "fruit bomb" qualities that I like, but seemed more subdued and mature in complete flavor and mouth feel than the last time. We had a plate of assorted sliced up pears to go with as our movie snack. All together, the entire packege was enjoyable.
