Excellent Zin, with plenty of black, briary fruit and excellent texture. My husband grilled up some steaks, and this was the perfect compliment. Thank you!
Slap yer Mama good!
The Wineaccess marketing/review did not overstate what I found inside the bottle. I'm a Zin freak and have strong opinions and expectations with each bottle i try. The Ottimino is not only an in-you-face flavor explosion, you could also use it as India Ink. I won't add my own tasting notes, since Wineaccess has already done a fine job of it. All I can add is this Zin is a top shelf bomber that explodes in your mouth and you'll be tasting the long finish well into next week. Briars, stony minerals, chocolate, and immense stewed plums left me clamoring for more, in addition to the other flavors noted in their review. A steal, and I should have purchased more.
Classic zin, not over the top. I'm pleased, very good value.
2007 Ottimino Vineyards Zinfandel
Excellent Zin. Especially at this price. Would buy again and highly recommend.
Have tasted 4 bottles of this wine since the initial corked bottle. All have been excellent.
Our friends drank all of ours
Very versatile wine. Good for drinking alone or with food.
Nice, quality Zin......
Needs a little time with air and needs room temps to max out its flavor, power, etc......the Ottominos tend to be a very heavy, slightly muddier Zin but a nice Zin, not the best I've had through Wineaccess but very good qualilty.....good drink though if you get it at the right pricepoint.......
2nd btl was more powerful than first tasting . Went well with food. Fruity, smooth, good finish. No complexity. I am changing this Zin to a fair value.
This was more like a traditional Zinfindel. Fruity, more bold. could use some time to mature, but very drinkable.
Lovely soft Zin
Delicious soft Zinfandel -- excellent value
Old Style Zin
Very enjoyable and balanced - not over the top crazy
more finesse than traditional zin
Good Zin, but oversold by WA on it's power
Compared to other sub-$20 Zins: Dk.Red, medium density in appearance. Fruity and spicy, med. body in flavor. Long finish but no complexity. Better with food. Overall, a well balanced but not overpowering Zin. IMHO WA oversells this as "rich and powerful". OK value (value=performance / price) for a Zin.
This is DCV??
Very light for a DCV Zin. Ripe berry, it of vanilla and oak, short entry and finish. Left wanting.
Less Than Expected
A bit of a disappointment. Not bad, but given the pedigree, story, and purported care taken with the grapes, the result is a restrained and somewhat dull Zinfandel. Goes well with any full-flavored meats, cheeses and pastas, but lacks distinguishing nose/flavor characteristics. You can do better for less.
