2003 Dillian Ranch Zinfandel – Amador County The 2003 vintage was a relatively late year, especially in the foothills of Amador County. With our patience to wait to harvest until optimum ripeness, we experienced long hang time of fruit on the vines and low yields. The Dillian vineyard once again produced fruit with richness, extract, and elegance. This 2003 Zinfandel exhibits rich blackberry, dried plum, as well as bright cherry and spice aromas. Up front the wine is full-bodied with sweet tannins on the palette, juicy fruit and mocha fl avors. The fi nish is long and elegant, and lingers only long enough to want more!
