DetailsWhen vines get past their fourth decade, they produce fewer grapes, but much more intense fruit, giving rich, dense wine with great character and ageing potential.
Medium-full bodied with firm acidity, this Old Vine Zin shows a combination of red and black fruits--raspberry, blackberry, fig, plum and raisin, along with an intriguing black pepper spiciness on the rich, rolling finish. An excellent match with dark chocolate (try it!), it's also a great barbecue wine (especially chicken), or with lamb, pulled pork or grilled burgers.

5.0 / 5.01 Reviewovz wine kitI really can't write a review as the wine is still in secondary fermentation. One comment I would like to make is that this kit will work best with a 7.9 gallon primary fermenter. With the skins pack and the juice itself it nearly filled a 6.5 gallon fermenter.July 10, 2018Purchased
