Price: $7.52 @ BevMo (retails at $14.99 a bottle)
What They Said:
Per BevMo “Close to saturation, the generous ’05 Zynthesis Old Vine Zinfandel delivers fully ripened flavors that approach the nuances of sun-dried raisins; excellent with savory stews.”
What I Think:
Again this was part of the 5c sale and at retail price this isn’t a pleasant discussion as for me the difference between $15 and $7.50 is quite monstrous in terms of expecations. The first thing I remember about this was sensing syrah. Sure enough turned around the bottle and found that there was both syrah and petite syrah blended into this. It claimed to be from 100 year old vines which seems difficult to believe at this price. I have another bottle waiting in the wings and if it matches the effort of this one I would be happy to grab a few more bottles at this price point.
Rating: Buy It (the 2nd bottle could put it on the Bulk Buy list)
