Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel 2004
A great zin, a lot of spice and great complexity. I never knew that they had such great wines in Amador County.
We approached this wine with a hint of apprehension because of the 15.5% alcohol content. We expected this wine to be overripe and raisiney, but were pleasantly surprised. I was just a bit ripe, but the ripe aromas enhanced rather than detracted from the overall experience. The eucalyptus in the nose offset the fruit which we characterized as strawberry and currants. No tannins, the wine is peaking.
