Cardinal Zin Big House Zinfandel 2011
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Carla rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
I picked up this bottle because the name fits really well with my Cooking With Sin project and it's a really good bang for the buck. It has a lovely, clear ruby red colour with lightly roasted and smokey raisins and blackberries. It ends with a gentle bitter chocolate finish. Being from the east, I have only recently been introduced to the red zins and they are now among my favourites.
