Beer Man and I were pleasantly surprised by this Zin. Zins for us are sort of hit or miss. Sometimes I like them, sometimes he likes them, sometimes we both like them. I tend to love old vine zins most of all, which usually means I find regular zins a little lacking.
Not this zin! The Pellegrini is nice in that it has a lot of the flavor characteristics of an old vine (oak, smoke, dark dark berries, dry), but it is a lighter more user-friendly version. This is a wine you can drink with food, sip all night or both! Both Beer Man and I have thoroughly enjoyed this bottle and were a little sad to see the bottle pour its last drop. This was another highly delicious bottle shipped as part of our Wine Awesomeness membership.
