Ottimino, 2010 Russian River Valley Zinfandel, Ottimino Vineyard
Brad Alper's Ottimino Vineyard provided the grapes for Ottimino's first vintage. Located on the same ridgeline as Von Weidlich and Rancho Bello Vineyards, Ottimino shares their Goldridge soil structure and the same temperate climatic traits. The vines are divided into three blocks, each planted to a different field selection of Zinfandel. The budwood was obtained from benchmark old vine Zinfandel vineyards, including selections known as Mendocino and Bradford Mountain. Grafting to vigorous and disease-resistant St. George rootstock minimized virus potential and will ensure vine growth under dry-farmed conditions.
The vineyard rows run nearly north to south, which provides for full exposure to the sunlight during the long summer days. The vines are trained in a vertical cordon, allowing the grape clusters optimal exposure to dappled sunlight and gentle, cooling breezes. As with all of Ottimino's vineyards, the vines are cropped for low yields in an effort to achieve unique flavors and unparalleled quality.
TASTING NOTES:
Intense aromas of blueberry, orange rind, and ripe raspberry are bolstered by well-integrated notes of French oak that amplify the wine’s cardamom spice. The entry is big and velvety, and the broad palate features flavors of blackberry jam, cranberry and blueberry, all ringing out in the mouth-coating and lengthy finish.
