The 3rd bottling this vintage from Fred. The most balanced and sophisticated of his estate zins this wine has finesse and depth. Lots of berries, spice and richness on the nose and palate. Lush entry and a solid center. Long 3&3/4 lapper finish makes for a lovely bottle. Light tannins in the background. Almost a peak. Should hold for another 3-6. 90/92. 16 bu the box. 14.5% alc. WW
