Tastes immature now, with flashy, sweet blackberry, cherry and raspberry jam fruit flavors, and a rich coating of smoky oak. The tannins are complex and impressive. Not showing well now because it's so direct, but it's possible that six years in the cellar will begin to bring about secondary bottle character.
(*One Star) Lightly loamy and graced with a minerally note in its fairly direct ripe-currant and oak aromas, ZD's latest is a comparatively trim wine that keeps ripeness in check and its sights set on slightly restrained fruit. It is firm and modestly tannic, and it is not ready for drinking, but neither is it a wine needing lengthy cellaring. Set it aside for four of five years.
