Appearance: Opaque red-black. Crimson-purple rim. Aroma: Powerful impression of blackberries, with a hint of wood smoke and sweet vanilla. The nose begins to open up and develops notes of dark chocolate. Palate: The initial impact is very full bodied, with a plush, soft structure. Flavours of dark berries dominate; wild blackberries and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee. Food Pairing: Rice based dishes like paella, beef, pork, pasta, grilled vegetables.

Top 100: 2020, Rank: 28. This red marries the ripe fruit and toasty oak of the international style with a savory, rustic character. A thick, polished texture, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity, carries dark plum, black pepper, soy sauce and loamy earth flavors that are seamless and long. Drink now through 2032. 8,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

The 2016 Zarihs, which, if you read the name back to front, would tell you what grape it is, has abundant notes of smoked bacon and fried corn, giving it a savory profile. It has abundant smoky and toasty notes reminiscent of incense, cigar ash and cold bonfire. The palate is full-bodied, the wine is ripe with 15% alcohol and there are plenty of oak-related flavors and a creamy texture from the oak and alcohol. Forty percent of the volume spent 12 months in new American oak barrels, which explains the abundant vanilla and coconut notes. For fans of the style. I'd try it with barbecued ribs. 114,000 bottles produced.
