Ken Deaver stoops his broad shoulders to uncork a bottle of Zinfandel, wearing his trade-mark denims and cowboy hat, and you soon learn that Ken knows his wines. And his grapes.

Ken Deaver stoops his broad shoulders to uncork a bottle of Zinfandel, wearing his trade-mark denims and cowboy hat, and you soon learn that Ken knows his wines. And his grapes. A drive over Deaver’s 300 acres will take you past 120-year-old Zinfindel vines and eight acres of Mission vines, so called because they were brought from Mexico by the Jesuits and Franciscans. The Deaver mission vines were planted around 1853 by Ken Deaver's great grandfather John A. Davis. His son, Ken's grandfather, planted the Zinfandel four decades later. For years, the Deaver's "old vine" grapes were sold exclusively to home winemakers. The first vintage of Deaver Vineyards Zinfandel was bottled under the “Lakeshore” label in 1985. Read less

Soft and quite spicy on the nose with cracked pepper, dry baked earth, hot chalk and stone notes adding depth to the vanilla tinged red plum and sour cherry pie. A lurking floral tone gains in the glass. The sweetly fruited attack yields to a gentle mid-palate that features good yet unobtrusive structure for the very spicy red fruits in the strawberry/cranberry end of the spectrum. This is quite fresh with a touch of melon on the back end and there is a subtle custardy, vanilla vein that leads out to the very cherried finish with a touch of spicy red hots and spiced cranberry sauce on the final. Perhaps a touch too easy but with broad based appeal. 88pts.

At this price point, I honestly thought it was overrated. Very citrusy and light, with some oak. Not bad, but I think I can get a similar wine for much less.

Light bodied but nicely flavored with typical Amador zinfandel aromas and spicey taste. Better w/ beef stew than lamb chops.
