'07 Dancing Bull Zin $6.99 (Wine of the Month Price) 87+ pts.
Finally got around to popping a bottle of DB Zin tonight and I'm glad I did. To say that this Zin is approachable would be an understatement.
It pours a ruby red that's not overly dark. I can still see my fingers on the other side of the wine. That's your first clue that we're not going to be involved in anything really heavy and complex here.
The nose is dark. Plums, vanilla, and most definitely cherries. I'd compare it to a Cherry Vanilla Coke with more cherry. (The longer I let this wine sit out the more the vanilla comes to the forefront.)
This wine is easy drinking. Tart cherries on the front with a nice tannic bite on the end. Leaves you with vanilla and spice.
This wine is pretty good. And for $6.99 during February wine of the month it's a really good value.
