Great CA Zin. Thank you Greg! Never had this.......very well made. Big fruit on the nose and palate with a long finish. Not as "spicy" as I would expect......but extremely quaffable and well paired with flank steak.

We agree with other reviews, sweet and forward red fruits, not peppery like most Zins but weighty and delicious.

Super fruit bomb. 2003 vintage aged well. Alcohol got stronger; fruit got sweeter—plumb and raisin overtones.

I had 2017 vintage Gino Rinaldi single vineyard and it was excellent. Fruit forward l, but balanced well with oak so not jammy. Delicious!

Amazing. It’s a fruit bomb but has the body and complexity to hold up to a meal. The 14 is the best fiddletown I’ve had so far. A true Zinfandel masterpiece.
