I'm back!
-Before my review, let me state that Zins are probably my least favorite wine. Thats not to say I don't like it, just not as much as Cabs or Pinots.
-My father in law is a huge Zin fan, so we popped open this Zin with seasoned tri-tip and garlic mashed potatos. This unfiltered wine has a nice dark color and seems to hold up well. The taste hints were a pleasant mix of raspberry and plum with that remained very lightly with the finish. Interestingly, the sharp tastes (including tannins) that I associate with zins are not very present in this wine. Overall, pretty standard zin that was nice with dinner. 85 pts.

I've had Brutocao wines before and found that they do not hold up well. They seem to be half-made wines, missing something.
