Four Vines Zinfandel Amador County Maverick 2005
2005 Four Vines Zinfandel Amador County A powerful zinfandel with laserlike focus, this has wild berry and spice aromas and ripe, intense blackberry, fresh earth and bay leaf notes that finish tightly wound tannins. Drink now through 2012 JL December 15, 2007 advance. Pleasantly devious mischief abounds from these dry-farmed, head pruned, old vine vineyards in the Shenendoah Valley. This Sierra Foothill valley is renowned for its old vine Zin vineyards, where fiery red volcanic soils produce fruit with intense, earthy character. The 100-plus-year old vines of the original Grandpere Vineyard, along with the 40- year old vines of The Deaver and Linstead Vineyards produce a wine that is chewy and spicy, rich with blackberry fruit and a hint of velvet vanilla oak. Blended with a touch of Syrah from the Bailey Vineyard. Maverick The Jam bomb...mischievous fun! This is a California Wine.
It's fine, but having had both, I actually prefer the cheaper zin they have, the old vines, which you can get for 11.99 at world market. The tasting notes said "a fruit bomb" but I would never have described it that way.
decent wine for its price. bit too oaky...tasted more like a dry cab.
Nice wine but certainloy not a "bomb." Overpriced - Seghasio or Michael David Zins much better!
The Jam bomb says it all! May be a bit sweet for some. Overall an enjoyable wine, I will buy again.
