On the nose I found cedar cranberry, pepper, smoke, boysenberry, pomegranate, chocolate, red fruit, and cherry. Loved the nose! The wine followed through in the mouth showing tons of red fruit. I got cherry, cranberry, red raspberry, pomegranate, cedar, and juicy red fruit. Overall, the wine was smooth with nice acidity. It’s a light bodied Zin, so if you are looking for a restrained Zin with lots of red fruit that would be great with your pizza, this one is for you!

    I had this wine yesterday at the tasting room in Healdsburg. Part of the Wine Roads wine and food affair. Great wine, best food. The Pork tendsrloin was the best food of the day. All the zins from J. Keverson were awesome!!!! We bought a case of the 06 Hales Zin. Great sale price!!!!

    I had this zin at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair and then again a few weeks ago at Winter Wineland. This is a great wine, and at the case sale price of $15.00 a bottle, we took a case home. All the wines were great from J. Keverson. Keep up the great wine making!!!!
