Cartlidge & Brown Zinfandel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A full ruby/garnet in color, the 2007 Amador County Zinfandel offers a spot-on varietal nose of rich plum and cherry, spice cake, leather, and sweet oak. On the palate, it is firm yet without hard edges; its inviting flavors include lush red fruits highlighted by licorice, baking spices, and a bright minerality that lends juiciness to the ripe fruit impression. Enjoy it with roasted or grilled meats, poultry, and hearty pastas; it is as at home with beef tenderloin in red wine sauce as it is with ribs or pot-roast. Also a wonderful companion for alfresco cold cuts and fine delicatessen fare.

Cartlidge & Browne Winery:
"Despite the enormous influence of California's wineries, too few specialize in premium wines at value prices. One that does is Cartlidge and Browne. Avoiding extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals' personalities.
