A beautiful bottling that will prosper with time, easily until 2024, this grippy, earthy Zin offers soft plum and brambly blackberry amid a pretty, floral nose and plenty of peppery anise and earth. Aged in French oak from low-yielding vines originally planted in 1865, this is a premier example of Fiddletown Zin made with precision and care.
