After 32 years as Beringer's head winemaster, Ed Sbragia struck out on his own with Sbragia Family Vineyards. He still consults at Beringer, but this is where his heart is.
Wine Advocate (Parker): 90 ($34) “Zinfandel is one of Sbragia’s specialties and the three I tasted, all from the 2012 vintage, merit mention. The outstanding 2012 Zinfandel Gino’s reveals a dark ruby color, and copious notes of briary, raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of earth, pepper, roasted meats, and Provençal herbs. Medium to full-bodied and luscious, it is best drunk 2015-19.”
