Palate: tart, harsh, blackberry fruit, and thin. I served it too warm.
With some air it mellows out and is neither tart nor harsh but this is a very mediocre Zin. I paid $10 for this and for the price there are numerous zins widely available and much better. Think Rosenblum'sVintners Cuvee or Cline so definitely raise a glass of another Zin!
