Renwood Dry Creek Zin 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Renwood has long been renowned for its robust, richly flavored zinfandels, many of them made from old, dry-farmed vines. We believe in living life to the fullest and the expression of this bold vitality as found in fine Zinfandel. Our secret comes from some of California's oldest vineyards that we now share with the rest of the world.This wine has a nose of exotic spices and dried fruits. This classis old vine character also exhibits notes of lavender. On the palate full in body and very ripe the dark fruit on the first taste melds into mildly spicy fruit with a hint of roasted coffee towards the end. Overall this dusty and bold wine offers ample flavor." -Winery

Surrounded by some of America’s oldest Zinfandel vineyards, Renwood Winery is located in the picturesque California foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Renwood produces world-class award winning wines from Amador County and the Sierra Foothills. Boston native Robert Smerling founded Renwood in 1993. Mr. Smerling fell in love with Amador County’s rich history and magnificent vineyards. A plan was set in place to build one of America’s premier Zinfandel wineries. Mr. Smerling brought together a group of professional investors who helped him found the company. Wine production has grown from 2,500 cases in 1993 to over 100,000 cases today. The critics all agree Renwood produces consistently exceptional wines covering the spectrum from big, bold, jammy Zins to wonderfully balanced Syrahs and Barberas. Today we produce over 18 different wines, including 2 Proprietary wines, 3 Vineyard Designated wines, 6 Amador County wines, 4 Red Label wines and 3 Dessert wines. With the introduction of our Red Label Series from our younger vines, Renwood has entered a new phase in its development. We are able to provide quality wine at reasonable prices to the wine by-the-glass trade and major floor displays in supermarkets and large retailers throughout the country. As part of the continuing expansion, Renwood acquired Santino Winery in 1995. Today, we have 50,000 square feet of production space in Plymouth. In addition to the Plymouth site, we have an Ione facility with 15,000 square feet of production space. Our Tasting Room and Hospitality Center are open daily from 10:30 to 5:30. Last year, Renwood entertained 40,000 visitors at our Tasting Room. You can find Renwood wines in all 50 states and 16 foreign countries. Renwood has been featured in Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Food & Wine Magazine, Touring & Tasting, Decanter, and many other magazines. Renwood has been awarded top medals at world wine competitions including California State Fair, Los Angeles County Fair, San Francisco International Wine Competition, Hilton Head Wine Festival, Atlanta Wine Challenge and many more worldwide. Our flagship wine, Renwood Grandpère® Zinfandel comes from the oldest clone of Zinfandel in America dating back to the 1860’s. This unique wine has won worldwide acclaim, as Americas most loved Zinfandel! For more information, visit our website at www.renwood.com Read less

Deep ruby in color, intoxicating aroma of dark berries. The taste is incredible full of rich deep flavor of cassis and a bit of spice. The flavor lingers and aftertastes of coffee and a slight floral taste. This is a bold satisfying wine sure to please many Cab, Malbec and other jam packed wine lovers.

This wine has a nose of exotic spices and dried fruits. This classic old vine character also exhibits notes of lavender. On the palate, full in body and very ripe, the dark fruit on the first taste melds into mildly spicy fruit with a hint of roasted coffee towards the end. Overall, this dusty and bold wine offers ample flavor. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
