Opinion: I would recommend this.
Other Comments: This is a shapeshifter: soft and intensely Zin when opened. Wait a while and it seems to develop the dust and Sangiovese backbone usually seen with a pricey Brunello and later, as the bottle grows empty, it goes all round and mellow with incredible cranberry, peppery flavors as the tannins get all shy and retiring. I'd call this wine indescribable because it's not the same wine each time you take a sip. This is obviously the Zin that Heraclitus was thinking about when he wrote that you could not step twice into the same river.
