2017 Rinaldi Vineyard Fiddletown Zinfandel
2017 Rinaldi Vineyard Fiddletown Zinfandel
Organic Vineyard

A rich ruby/black cherry color that exhibits aromas of wild raspberry, wild strawberries, white and black pepper and  underbrush (bramble). An almost over-the-top palate that is a multi-layered experience from black raspberry/ Kirsch that has an expansive mid-palate that shows both elegance and intensity with a generous finish.

Tasting Notes
90 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Coming from a single vineyard in Amador County, the 2017 Zinfandel Rinaldi Vineyard has a spicy, savory, medium-bodied style as well as notes of cedarwood, dried flowers, 90 potpourri, and sweet strawberry and black berry fruits. Soft and supple on the palate, with an upfront style, it shows more tannins on the finish, which gives the wine plenty of length. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.
