A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Clearly a very ripe Zin but not straying into pruney/raisened territory. Showing no signs of drying out yet. But the late hrvsty character and alcohol is only going to become more dominant. With a broiled pork tenderloin in a mustard/stout sauce, it was pretty decent. Probably would go even better w/ KansasCity (is there any other kind?) BarBQue.
