Winemaker's Notes:

Black cherry and pomegranate aromas are laced with hints of white pepper, Occidental dust, and vanillin spice. The palate entry has gobs of fruit, with cherry, bramble and ripe strawberry at the core. Smooth, round tannins anchor a great depth and concentration of flavor, and the excellent balance makes this Zinfandel a great food wine.

100% Zinfandel

My Notes:

About Ottimino:

Close enough to the ocean to benefit from the cooling sea breeze yet high enough to be above the fog on many days, this section of the Russian River Valley Appellation is unsurpassed in yielding award winning Zinfandel wine. Winemaker William Knuttel's 25 years experience along with his creativity and intuition guide him as he transforms fruit from Von Weidlich, Rancho Bello, and Ottimino Vineyards into unparalleled wine.
