Zebra Zin

Zebra Zin Wine Details
Price: $27.00 per bottle

Description: Intense dark purple in color, wonderful jammy, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry aromas waft from your glass immediately. An abundance of sweet, plush, earthy fruit is heightened by hints of spice, bittersweet chocolate, and white pepper from the five percent Syrah component. Full bodied and sumptuous, the ripe fruit is accentuated by wood apparent from the first sip through the grand finale. Encore! Encore!

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
