Nick Goldschmidt’s Fidelity Zinfandel offers great taste and value. This blend shows how Zinfandel and Petite Sirah complement each other perfectly: Zinfandel offers robust blackberry, anise and pepper aromas and flavors. Petite Sirah brings blueberry, plummy fruit with roundness and structure to the mid-palate. The Zinfandel returns adding grace, length and elegance. Light-handed oak aging influences the Petite Sirah to add a chocolate note in the finish.

While the wine is certainly drinkable now there is no doubt this wine is going to shine brighter an additional 1-3 years in the bottle. It has wonderful complexity for a sub $15 bottle. Like a lot of wines in their youthful stage it definitely benefits with decanting or additional time in the glass. While good on its own, this is a Zinfandel that is definitely built to pair with food. Pair it up with a rack of lamb, lasagna, baby back ribs or just a good ol hamburger. This wine has the depth and versatility to pair with those and many more delicious food options.

Have a great Saturday!

See you soon!
