86% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah & 2% Carignan


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Ruby red in colour, this wine is tinged with violet hues. There is a concentration of welcoming pomegranate and boysenberry aromas followed by mouthwatering blackberry pie. Flavours are led by juicy raspberry and red cherry cola, all of which are framed by a subtle pepper note. The fruit is complemented by baking spice, most notably clove and cinnamon, with soft, smooth tannins delivering a round, balanced finish.

Artezin Zinfandel is instantly recognizable as a classic, fruit-forward, “zinny” Zin. This signature style offers a full-bodied wine with round tannins and moderate alcohol. Artezin Mendocino County Zinfandel represents a blend of the best sustainably farmed grapes from family-owned vineyards in the ridgelines and benchlands of the Ukiah Valley."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Gorgeously fruited and complex, the bouquet shows dark fruit richness together with vanillin oak, cake spice, smoked meat and dried herb nuances. It's wonderfully weighted and plush on the palate, delivering excellent fruit intensity backed by silky tannins, finishing persistent and velvety. At its best: now to 2025."


Rated Premium & 91/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Totally classic Zin’ with aromas of five spice and dark cherry then toasty oak, char, smoke and suggestions of red and black licorice. This transitions to a note of sour red fruits and berry conserve. On the palate – tense, fruity and spicy with flavours that reflect the nose, medium+ – ish acidity, mostly integrated tannins, smooth, satin texture and a warm balanced finish. Best drinking from today and through 2022+."


90/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast, May 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Salt and pepper spiciness meets tempting blackberry and black-plum flavours in this full-bodied, rich and mouthfilling wine. It's well balanced for drinking now, as light tannins and good acidity give just a bit of grip in the texture."

89/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"Composed of 84% Zinfandel with smaller parts of Petite Sirah and Carignan, the 2016 Zinfandel Mendocino offers up crushed blueberries and warm plums with hints of mulberries, dried herbs, damp soil and fruitcake. Full-bodied, rich, chewy and expressive, it has lovely dried berry, spice box and earth expressions with a nice, long finish."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
