Wine experts say this White wine presents itself as dry and sophisticated in style, with rich fruit and a sophisticated use of oak. The mouthfeel is full, the balance is superb, and the wine conjures up visions of southern Italy, ripe and sophisticated with notes of wild herbes de Provence and exotic spice. Rich and dry, it has a good, fresh crispness, which helps round up the edges, leaving behind a pleasantly chocolaty finish. Named after the tonic (or rather, nearly tangy) candle that provides fresh fire on the winemaker`s (and the varietal`s) regular label, this blush wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It`s dry, full-bodied and very fruity, with a smoky finish. Drink now–2018. While the alcohol on this Zin is 15.7%, this is a beautifully ripe, juicy and deliciously herbaceous wine.
