After almost twenty years of being on the forefront of the Zin advocacy movement and making great Zins for other wineries I finally committed to making one for MIRO Cellars. The evolution of Zin in my opinion is toward balance instead of power, terroir expression instead of the sameness of modern winemaking; elegance instead of brute force.
