Fear grabbed me as I remembered a certain fine tuning is required in order to approach and enjoy a „Californian style musical“, an original American form I expect K-J to provide.
The fruit was „infused“ with cedar-like tobacco box woodiness, but smoky fruit on the nose delivered both concentration and intrigue. Nothing over-intensive due to a fact I know I should have decanted the wine. Besides, there is one thing more annoying from over-oak and that`s over-fruit.
A luscious slurp… not so sure whether „voluptuous“ is a virtue, but it should be as far as the Mendocino Zin is in question 🙂
Structure built like a monument, no food necessary, although the vivid mouthwatering acids are on all the right places and present an unexpected pleasure making the wine experience „real“. Dry Zin with 14,5% alc, a percentage recognized inside stomach alone and well integrated in wine body. Finish is quite focused and impressive. I rather enjoyed the light tannin grip You get after a few sips…
Surprisingly well balanced, ageworthy structure and some good juice there. Such a World blockbuster is such a surprise for a wine drinker in Croatia? Yep. And I have really enjoyed this, even more with a nibble of some leftovers of sheep cheese from island of Pag and some horse salami. 87
