Ottimino Zinfandel Sonoma County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense blueberry and bramble aromas mingle with scents of black pepper and espresso. Concentrated blueberry and boysenberry flavors anchor the mid-palate, and the wine finishes with rich, round tannins and a persistent finish.

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.

For the oak fans out there. Nice wine, but the oak over-ran the fruit.
