B. Shiftin Cellars-Terroir Napa Valley-Wine Library Tribute Series-Zinfandel-Howell Mountain-Napa Valley-California-2005-$29.99-A big nose of dark fruit and spice, dark purple in color.  Still a big Zin for being five years old, black cherries, currants, chocolate, pepper and spice, smooth for such a full bodied red.  This wine was a special project of the staff of The Wine Library and they did a great job in producing a very good wine.             NR               CR-4.5              Good with steak, ribs, pasta.
