User Reviews for Terra d'Oro Home Vineyard Zinfandel

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are crushed into half ton macrobins and left with their skins for a full ten days of fermentation. Four times a day the solid cap of skins is punched down by hand to maximize extraction from skins while minimizing extraction from harsh seed tannins. Each lot was fermented separately, then pressed into American small oak barrels (30% new). The individual lots aged for 12 months before being blended for bottling.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Home Vineyard Zinfandel has a decadent nose, rich with raspberry, cinnamon, peppery currants and spice. Ripe fruit and nicely spiced flavors settle into soft, subtle, silky tannins. The richness of this wine beautifully balances duck, roasted rabbit, or game hen paired with grilled vegetables.
