From the bottle:
"Bianchi's Heritage Selection wines are a host of distinctive creations from our own unique vineyards. Ripe concentrated grapes for Bianchi Zen Zin. Spicy oak, ravishing raspberry jam flavors of Bianchi Zen Zin. Z wine for your repasts -- Zen Zin.
The 2011 Bianchi Paso Robles Heritage Selection Zinfandel opens with an intoxicating, almost seductive, aroma of blackberry, black raspberry, vanilla, licorice, menthol and more. Tasting the wine shows wonderful balance even at 16% alcohol. Delicious jammy dark fruit, peppery spice and touches of vanilla and bramble are just a few of flavors you'll find in this silky smooth wine. Licorice, oak and dark chocolate lead into the dry finish which also features more tasty dark berry fruit. A great example of the variety!
