There are a great many twenty dollar wines to choose from. The key to choosing a really good twenty dollar wine is in finding those with forty dollar components. Ottimino Zinfinity is that. Zinfinity is made by Bill Knuttel. Though the 2014 Zinfinity has not yet been rated, previous vintages are all 90 plus points as are the ratings for virtually every wine Bill makes. So there you have the winemaking component. Great winemakers tend to make wines with excellent structure and balance. The Zinfinity is that witha polished dark spicy plum and cherry flavor profile finishing in lengthy brambly smoky black and blue fruit. Bill added old vine Petite Sirah to get that finish. The Zinfinity is a completely delightful dinner wine, reminding me more of a high quality, velvety Italian Rosso than it does Zinfandel. This wine is a compliment to red meats, pizza, pasta, a variety of cheeses and without question BBQ! click here for the entire offer.
The proof is always in the glass!
