Food Pairings for Cedarville Zinfandel El Dorado
· Jonathan Lachs & Susan Marks, who met at UC Davis, founded the winery in 1995, fulfilling a 15 year dream · Cedarville is named in honor of a nearby ghost town (founded in 1852) that boomed during the Gold Rush · All the wines are produced from the 15 acre estate vineyard at 2500' elevation in the Sierra Foothills. 2006 Zinfandel Theharvest from the 2006 Zinfandel vines was quite small, yielding grapeswith deep, concentrated flavor. Unlike the 2005 vintage, there was noneed to perform a strict selection of our Zinfandel lots to assemblethis wine. All the separate vineyard blocks were delicious! We enhancedthe complexity of the wine by blending in a touch of Petite Sirah andSyrah, and for the first time, a little bit of Grenache. Aromas of darkfruits, blackberries, wood smoke, and root spices lead into flavors ofchocolate, ripe raspberry, subtle mineral notes, and mint, withremarkable structure, and a very long, lingering finish. Serious stuff. Estate Vineyard Blocks: Estate Vineyard, south facing slop near top of vineyard at over 2,500 feet elevation. Blend: 88% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Sirah, 3% Syrah, 3% Grenache Cases Produced: 754
