Fiddletown Cellars Bent Bow Amador County Zinfandel 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

From a collection of Zinfandel vineyards Winemaker Joe Schebl hand selects, the 2008 produced an extremely well refined and balanced wine. Dark red in color, it is classic Zinfandel, going through a range of expression as it takes on air. You'll find sophisticated floral aromas, vanilla extract and blueberry jam. On the palate it first reads as a block of big red fruit, most notably cranberries, bitter cherry and raspberries. Silky smooth tannins dominate this beauty from front to back resulting in a wine of lovely textural grace that is big and elegant yet remarkably easy to drink.

"Welcome to our first release! This ultra ripe, rich and jammy wine is truly what we believe Zinfandel should be. With a soft and succulent mouthfeel, it pairs great with steaks, ribs and pasta, or.......on its own!"

Piercing nose of pure zinfandel brambly fruit. Not a lot of complexity at first but wonderfully intense and immediately recognizable as Zin. Gains nice notes of leather and sweet cinnamon spice with an unusual, slightly yeasty tone. A really big wine in the mouth with bags of acidity but nice, really fresh slightly herb tinged black berry/black cherry fruit. Tannins are nice and soft adding to the full, rich mouthfeel. Intensely fruity finish has a bit of holiday spice floating around and some tannin that grabs on the finale with lingering notes of tar and watermelon now and later candy. Lots of wine here in a very bold style but this does show a fair amount of heat on the finish. 88pts

Tasting Notes:

As a follow up to our highly esteemed first release, this wine is once again a fantastic example of a big, bold and jammy Zinfandel. Loaded with blackberry, cranberries and vanilla.
