I love Davis wine, I ordered the case from the winery when I joined their club, after tasting the Soul Patch Pinot I got from woot. I received 4 bottles of this wine, I have had 1. Zin is not a favorite of mine typically, I rarely give them over an 86 even blends.
Further disclaimer, I don't write about wine well, I just don't taste the complex things all the professionals do. Here is what I wrote about this one on my private CT notes:
"Fourth bottle of Davis wine now, joined the club, they substituted 2 extra bottle of this wine for something they ran out of. I like it, not as good as the Pinot's I have had, but still good. To me, well made. Character of Zin with the earthy fruit of Syrah. Nice deep purple color. Nose has the balanced oak note of the Pinot's I love, with muted dark fruits, and a good earthiness. Good balanced mouth feel, smooth, luxurious, with a zin spicey kick. Medium to long finish. Little hot and dry on the finish for it to be a fantastic wine to me. Crystals on the cork, no worries, doesn't taste corked. Getting better as the night goes on. Probably better integrated on day 2, just a big peppery blend, would be fantastic with a steak. Old vine Zin certainly adds the concentrated pepper dark fruits you would expect.
Overall Score night one = 89 keep at 89 after night 2, knocking on a 90"
Notes over the two evenings I drank it. Also said it went well with Kalamata Olives and was too spicey for aged cheddar cheese.
Hope that helps.
