This award-winning Old Vine Zinfandel from Amador County delivers beautifully structured tannins and a long finish. A must for Zinfandel lovers!Awards: Double gold medal and Best of Class, Amador County Fair 2013
Wine History: Zinfandel vines were first planted in California during the Gold Rush, and they continue to thrive in the premiere wine-growing regions such as Amador County in the western Sierra Nevada foothills. Zinfandel is the primary grape grown in Amador County, where long, sunny autumns ensure a late harvest and perfectly ripe grapes. The porous soil allows for dry farming (no irrigation), which further contributes to a flavorful wine with well balanced acidity.
Tasting Notes: The vines that produced this Old Vine Zinfandel were planted in 1968. Made from free run juice (not pressed) this wine displays beautifully structured tannins and a hint of oak. Remarkably smooth and well balanced, with a long spice finish, this wine pairs especially well with lamb, beef, and curry.
