New York Times declared the ZD 2011 Cabernet as a BEST VALUE! - **1/2 out of *** - Fresh and structured, with ripe flavors of red fruits.
Tasting Notes - An intense aroma of briary black cherry, cassis and lavender is complemented with subtle hints of anise, tobacco and a slight note of juniper. Sweet, toasty vanilla and spice add depth and complexity. On the palate, lush, silky tannins envelop the core of forward black fruit, with perfectly integrated oak rounding out the long finish.14.5% ABV.
