2015 Rinaldi Vineyard Fiddletown Zinfandel

Freshly cracked peppercorns explode from the aromatics with black cherry compote following very close behind and just a touch of wild herbs. The black cherry and cracked pepper are in the forefront, but the wine becomes velvety on the long and ever lasting finish.

Ratings
Wine Spectator 93 points Sleek and elegantly layered, with expressive raspberry and white pepper aromas and vibrant wild berry, dusty sage and smoky anise flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2023.—T.F.
