For in this offering Bianchi has incorporated some neighbor's grapes to meld with the Estate Zen Zin and go beyond the perquisite panoply of aromas and flavors - fruit forward berry jam with hints of mint, earth, vanilla and smoke – and we see a pleasant overtone of oak spice with a kick of cinnamon preceding a mouth-coating finish.
Note that 11% of the blend comprising some Estate Syrah as well as Zin from some of the oldest vines in Paso Robles, some older than 80 years, are all there for color and depth. The 5% older vintage wines bring a mellow aged quality. So in the evolutionary history of Bianchi Zins, the 2009 is complex, lavishing lodes more layers of flourishing flavors.
