Terra d'Oro Winery Zinfandel 2016

Member Review by Zuiko:

This 2009 top end label wine from Montevina is another success from them. Although not as big as their 2008 or 2006, it still has plenty of fruit and spice to satisfy. Again it has the typical Terra d Oro berry/spice combination. Dark in color but not quite as much sweet fruit sensation as the 2008. My rating 89 to 90.Outstanding red wine for the money.

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 gril

WS 88pts CG 88pts - Winemaker Notes - Terra d Oro 2006 Zinfandel is a shining example of Amador Zinfandel. We don t have to coerce character and spice from the fruit, nor do we beat it back. Dark berry fruit is generously seasoned with characteristic Shenandoah Spice. The different oak styles lend molasses, vanilla and cinnamon to a balanced lingering finish. Sweet and spicy are two classic culinary combinations. Our chefs match many of our favorite dishes with this classic zinfandel, ranging from barbeque short ribs in chipotle dipping sauce to pan-seared filet mignon .or just an old fashioned juicy cheeseburger.

Winemaker Notes - The 2007 Terra d Oro Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel is a Grandfather among Zinfandels. The wine has a classic Amador blend of spices including allspice, cardamom and clove that fills out an intense spice rack. The flavors of ripe plum make this wine a rich Zinfandel from a historic vineyard and pairs well with grilled flank steak and fresh homemade salsa.

Winemaker Notes - The Terra d Oro SHR Field Blend Zinfandel shows beautiful deep, dark color in the glass. With classic Amador characteristics of warm spices, the nose is rich with ripe dark fruit with hints of clove, vanilla, and violet perfume. Bold andrich flavors fill the mouth with ripe blackberry and mocha. The long and warm finish makes this wine a perfect companion to roasted lamb with garlic and oregano, or a basil fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes and prosciutto.
