2016 Cortina Zinfandel, 93 points, Wine Enthusiast
A bouquet of floral notes and earthiness give way to a palate bursting of mixed berry cobbler. Raspberry, blackberry and blueberry notes are layered with white pepper and baking spices. This luscious wine dances on the palate and finishes with fine tannins and balanced acidity. Pair with rich meats like rack of lamb and duck, especially with herb-based sauces and pastas such as gnocchi with pesto. Firm sheeps’ milk cheeses, such as pecorino or pepato, also complement this wine.
2017 Cortina Zinfandel, 94 points, Wine Spectator
Always one of our most elegant and polished expressions of Zinfandel, Cortina has a bold flavor profile while being balanced and lithe on the palate. Notes of boysenberry, mulberry, cedar and clove complement the wine’s finely integrated tannins. A perfect partner to this wine would be a rack or leg of lamb. The richness of the wine and the combination of berry and spice notes would meld perfectly with the lamb’s rich and slightly gamey flavor.
