2009 1848 Special Reserve. It did not appeal to me. Not certain whether the wine was lacking in quality, or just in my preferences.
Some folks do not care and others like it, I do not like in your face new world/fruit bomb wines.

Jonathan K wrote:Landsman Zin- OK- I give up. I am just not overpowered by this one like others are. My take is that it is very pleasant, fruit forward wine with a charmingly restrained bouquet and tannins that just melt away with a little air. It is somewhat monolithic but a pleasure to drink. In context, being a higher end wine and following the terrific Landsman Pinot Noir, it is a bit disappointing. So remove the context from your mind and enjoy!!
