In certain cases, ZYN is unable to guarantee vintages due to the Alberta Government distribution system. ZYN will do its best to ensure that the vintages on its website are updated and accurate. If ZYN cannot fulfill your order with the requested vintage, you will be contacted and you may choose to either accept the available vintage or cancel the product.
All deliveries within Calgary will be fulfilled and delivered by ZYN, with some exceptions.
For any deliveries outside of Calgary, we will use a courier. It is preferred that you use a business address for shipping, but we can ship to most residential addresses and some rural addresses. Due to some courier restrictions, we cannot ship to PO boxes.
ZYN does not itself ship outside of Alberta. However, if you request delivery outside of Alberta, you authorize us to engage a shipper on your behalf to pick up your order from our store and deliver it as you instructed. You are solely responsible for ensuring compliance with the applicable laws of the place where you have directed the courier to deliver your order.
We primarily use a specialized courier that uses temperature-controlled vehicles. Shipping during the winter and summer months is inherently risky. Please be aware that ZYN will delay shipping if we feel that there is a chance your package may be affected by extreme weather conditions.
Breakage, Damage and Loss
ZYN takes every reasonable precaution to package your order for safe delivery, and virtually all packages are delivered intact. Shipping is not, however, risk free. Once we have packaged your order in accordance with our normal practices, and have delivered your package to the courier, our liability ends. For your protection, every order is automatically insured to a maximum of $3.50 per pound of the scaled weight for breakage, damage or loss, regardless of the order value. Weight, though, may not be an adequate measure of value, depending on the order. We are therefore offering you the option of purchasing full protection for a fee, at the checkout page. Note that claims for damaged or broken products must be made within 4 days of delivery. Lost packages will be dealt with on an individual basis.
ZYN mainly ships using ATS Healthcare and Canada Post. ATS offers delivery in temperature-controlled vehicles.
ATS and Canada Post will deliver to a business or residential address. If possible, ZYN recommends shipping to a business address for the following reasons:
1. Someone of legal drinking age must be at the address to receive the package.
2. If no one is home after two delivery attempts, there will be an additional $15.00 charge for the third attempt.
ZYN's goal is to ensure that all of our customers are satisfied with their orders. Should you need to return an item for any reason, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following criteria apply in most cases:
1. If the item(s) is in saleable condition, the purchase price will be refunded within 30 days of the purchase date. If the item has been shipped outside Calgary, the shipping charges are the responsibility of the purchaser.
2. Faulty items will be evaluated on an individual basis before a decision is made.
3. There is an inherent risk in buying older wines. While we store all of our wines properly, wines may nevertheless be defective. We regret that we cannot accept wines more than seven years old and cost in excess of $100 unless the producer agrees to replace the wine.
A re-stocking fee may apply.

Deep, dark purple. A stunning and tight bouquet, very compact, opens with airing to give a delicate fruit with floral notes and a touch of violet. Later, after swirling, there is a touch of graphite. The palate is juicy, tasty, and supported by a delicate freshness. A captivating wine; with a lot of body, very high standard, and extraordinary length. A very academic construction.
98 Points - James Suckling
Attractive, intense aromas of ripe blueberries, currants and more savoury, tarry notes, iodine, violets and cassis. The palate has a supple and succulent feel. This is cabernet in outright seductive mode, offering such fluid tannins and mouth-filling length. Drink or hold.
98 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
One of the wines of the vintage in the Medoc, the 2017 Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou, comes from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot from tiny yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. It is brought up in new barrels and offers stunning notes of pure creme de cassis, unsmoked tobacco, lead pencil, and crushed rocks. Showing a touch of spring flowers with air, full-bodied richness and depth, superb tannin quality, and a laser-like level of precision and purity, it will need a decade of cellaring yet will have 40-50 years of prime drinking. Hats off to proprietor Bruno Borie for another magical wine.
96 Points - Decanter
A little less intense and concentrated than the 2016, this focuses more on rich, smoky, finessed aromatics. The overall feel is gourmet and well-textured, with some welcoming rich spice. A serious contender for the top St Julien in 2017, this has wonderfully fleshy blackberry fruits, a screech of graphite adding mineral overtones, and a great dash of grilled oak. 7,500 cases of Ducru this year instead of 10,000 weren't affected by frost, but the Cabernets were less generous this year, down to around 30hl/ha. This is accomplished winemaking with great energy and poise. 100% new oak. 3.79pH.
96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black, the 2017 Ducru-Beaucaillou slowly unfurls to reveal beautifully fragrant notes of warm kirsch, wild blueberries, fresh red and black currants and violets with wafts of underbrush and Earl Grey tea. Medium-bodied, the palate has great freshness and elegance, with very well-played, plush tannins and bags of perfumed fruit, finishing on a lingering spicy note. The wine was aged 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.
96 Points - Vinous
The 2017 Ducru-Beaucaillou is racy, deep and luxuriously beautiful. In 2017, Ducru was very red-fruited and floral, with tons of inner sweetness and nuance to match its great, exotic personality. Mint, spice, chocolate and licorice accents add character as the 2017 gains brightness, aromatic purity and detail with a bit of air. Bruno Borie gave the 2017 18 months in 100% new oak. Along with Beychevelle, Ducru is the most dazzling wine in Saint-Julien.
96 Points - Wine Enthusiast
While the dense and dark tannins are prominent, they can't mask the exuberant fruit that wants to burst out. Blackberry flavours are impressively ripe and rich, shot through with acidity that gives the wine salinity and freshness. At the back, those tannins will allow the wine to age over many years.
96 Points - Wine Spectator
This has a warm and inviting feel, with mocha, Christmas pudding and blackberry and plum compote aromas and flavours flowing through atop fleshy, velvety structure. There's a graphite edge along with some alluring spice accents, and this stays polished and lengthy in the end.
