Notes from the Winemaker:

This is the fourteenth release of our popularly-priced Amador County Zinfandel. It is made from grapes that grow on our beautiful, rolling mountain sites that have the classic, vermilion-colored, Amador decomposed granite soil. The 2010 has full black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a big, sumptuous, and juicy mouth feel. It also presents complex spicy aromas, with a nice creamy texture derived from the 10 months time it receives in, only, French oak barrels. This wine has become our popular, but serious cru Beaujolais-styled/Rioja crianza-styled Zinfandel that has found its way on to many great restaurant lists across North America where it is often listed “by the glass ”. It is consistently rated one of the top Zinfandels in its class and one of the best value Zinfandels available. Although drinkable now, it gains complexity with bottle age. This wine’s release has become highly anticipated by many of our customers each year. We think this 2010 bottling follows in the tradition of our previous bottlings.. Our Zinfandel’s in 2010 have great fruit, balance, and charm.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2010 vintage):
"An excellent Zin--this has an invitingly soft floral nose, mountainous black-fruit flavors and structure and plenty of depth. This should age nicely over the next 3 - 5 years, but it is delicious to drink now, too." (7/2012)

90 Points & "Smart Buy" - Wine Spectator Magazine (2010 vintage):
"Crisp and elegant, with floral cherry and spice aromas and lively, pure raspberry, white pepper and loam flavors that linger toward light tannins. Drink now through 2017." –TF (6/2012)
