Very soft and subdued on the nose with slightly tarry blackberry bramble fruit and a touch of candied cherry and blue fruit notes with a powdered sugar edge. Surprisingly brisk mouthfeel with sweet fresh berry fruit notes that are pure and focused if low key. Very soft tannins in an easy drinking style with a touch of cinnamon on the finish. Solid if simple Zinfandel 85pts

grainy and opulent, hints of meat and cinnamon, with mild blueberry aroma. a penetrating brine gives the wine backbone, and the wood textures rise up from the deep morass.

Raspberry, sweet, lots of hot, lots of fruit but no structure.

I had this wine last night in a wine tasting and then purchased a bottle to share with friends. I am no wine snob, but I know what I like when I taste it. This was a very nice Zin.

Wine Tasting NotesTerra dOro Zinfandel is well suited for a cool Autumn evening on the porchIm all for Zin with football! This wine embodies the power, grace, and passion of Americas number one spectator sport. Dark fruit flavors of black currant and fig accompany the aroma of a steaming cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate. Richly textured and firmly structured it will pair well with classic tailgate fare as well as with white tablecloths and finer cuisine. We think we scored with this one and you will too. Open it up and make a pass.

Wine Tasting NotesTerra dOro SHR Field Blend Zinfandel smells like mountainsof cocoa. The nose is brightened by lively, fresh hints of blueberries and rose petal. The pallet is like a Jackson Pollack painting. Flavors unique to confermentationare splattered upon a zinfandel canvas of ripe berry, pepper, and chocolate. These flavors are sandalwood, cedar, nutmeg, sweet vanilla oak, and rose perfume. Fine grain tannin fills the mouth and carries the ripe berry flavors through to a spicy oak finish.
