Definite amador Zin. Old style and jammy.Deep purple. The bouquet was initially intense and slowly faded. Lot of licorice and assorted berrys on the nose. On the palate black pepper and very tart berrys with hint of cherry and plum. Tannins did not grab you. Seems like they were fading. the finish was good and almost all the fruit stayed with you for a while.

Smoky on the nose with nice dark cherry notes. Great midpalate with cherry/vanilla and dark chocolate. Pepper on the finish, which is long and pleasant. Great zin.

Ripe plum, dark chocolate, hints of cardamom and sagebrush in the wonderful nose, with undertones of printer's ink and tobacco. The taste is full, yet still a bit focused. A verdant character comes through, and a hint of caramelized sugar with lovely plum and cherry and spice, a bit of black pepper. Not a sophisticated profile, but a delicious one. Slightly astringent finish, leaving the palate ready for another quaff. This is my fifth bottle, and each has been delicious, and still surprisingly youthful. A couple more years in the cellar won't hurt this one a bit. Drink with assertive but not acidic foods. Great with grilled pork loin, fabada, ribs.

Smooth and strong berry aromas. Nice spicy kick at the end.

    Wine Tasting NotesThe Old Vine Zinfandel is deep ruby in color. The bouquet consists of brown sugar, caramel, sage, eucalyptus and bursting with dark berry fruit. The flavor is a sumptuous blend of warm blackberries on the forward, with a hint of dried fruit, finishing with sweet fleshy tannins.

    Wine Spectator ReviewRated 90A genuine Zinfandel, intense and appealingly rustic. Wild berry, dusty clay and fresh licorice aromas, with tart, minerally boysenberry and smoky pepper flavors. The tannins suggest there's no hurry. Best from 2009 through 2012.Wine Tasting NotesThe 2002 Fiddletown Zinfandel exhibits ripe blackberry jam, cherry, plum and white pepper aromas. The entry is soft with savory red fruit flavors that are lush and vibrant on the palate. The abundant layers of fruit in the middle produce a balanced wine, which finishes with a little spiciness and wonderfull toasty vanilla notes. The wine is a great expression of the Fiddletown appellation.

    Wine Tasting NotesThe Sierra Foothills Zinfandel displays aromas of red fruit, berry and cracked pepper. The entry is fresh fruit and vanilla flavors that carry through the mid-palate, finishing with a lingering finish and a smoky/toasty oak ending. This Claret style Zinfandel is smooth and luscious.

    Wine Tasting NotesThe Grandmere Zinfandel is a light garnet red with slight brick tones on the edge. The aroma of this wine welcomes the drinker with its soft, yet complex fruit. Raspberry and clove mid-palate essences balance the wine as it finishes with a rich texture of vanilla and caramel. The elegant, soft round tannin structure is built for a lasting finish.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemaker's Notes The 2005 Sierra Foothills Zinfandel displays aromas of cherry, plums and nutmeg. The flavors mirror the aromas and give the wine a fresh fruit flavor with a spicy aftertaste. This lighter of Sierra Foothills Zinfandel is smooth and luscious. Vintage The growing season of 2005 started out with a normal spring but the record winter and spring rainfall gave plenty of early growth. A hot early summer continued the growth and berry development and a large crop was the result. The weather remained dry throughout the harvest, resulting in perfect fruit condition. Fermentation and Aging The lots we select each vintage are usually from younger vines and the lots that are lighter in body and structure. Each vineyard lot was fermented individually at moderate temperatures. Pressed at dryness, some wines remained in tank and some were racked directly into barrels for aging. The barrel lots were aged in combination French and American oak barrels for 10 months. The wines from our rigorous tasting selection were carefully blended together to produce a wine of exceptional value.
