Tasting Note                         

90+  2006 Ottimino  Rancho Bello Zinfandel (Russian River Valley)   1/7/12 ($22)

  14.8% alc
Color: Deep garnet. (3.0) Bouquet: Elegant Zinberry, oak and briar with sleek acidity and some fresh mint. (3.0) Body: A solid middleweight with excellent acidity and fruit. Elegant with a tangy mouthfeel. (3.0) Flavor: Even more interesting than the bouquet with minerally spice complementing tangy Zinberry and pretty blueberry. (3.5) Finish: More restrained than the flavor. (3.0)
Overall: An elegant, high acidity RRV Zin. Excellent now, but could become more giving and interesting in the next few years. Great value. (15.5)
