I have not had a Carol Shelton wine I have not liked and this "Wild thing" Mendocino Zin is no exception. It has a very nice balance and is not as heavy handed as a sierra foothills Zin, even though I'm a big fan of Amador and other Zins from that region. At $ 17.99 this is a really good weekend wine - I'll give it 8 swiggs. We had it with some very hot Szechuan food and the wine held up to all the spices and chilis. You can find it a lot of places but this price was from New Leaf markets and it is a bit lower than what I have seen elsewhere.
