Zinfandelic Amador County Old Vine Zinfandel 2011

Member Review by rhwine:

Just tried the Zinfandelic Old Vine Amador Zinfandel 2006. I found it as nice as the 2005 if not better. Full bodied. Flavors of black cherry and raspberry with hints of earth and spice. An elegant Zin that works well with food. Not a fruit/wood bomb.

The 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel is big and bold, balanced with flavors of berries and spice. Delicious with rich foods. I enjoyed it with smoked Gouda and a tomato-based pasta dish.

A very nice drinking zin. This wine has good fruit without being jammy and nice tannins that are not overpowering but still a long finish. I haven’t really found a zin with finesse like this before since mostly they tend to be fruit bombs. So I really enjoyed this wine. It has a wide food pairing potential more like a Merlot or Pinot.

A nice Zinfandel for the price. Zinfandelic Amador Old Vine Zin shows really nice balance - not overripe or super jammy. It has nice density of fruit and subtle spicyness. The finish has nice complexity and length. The cool label is eye-catching - reminds me of sixties rock posters, hippie, flower power, etc

Zinfandel Amador County 2005 - Zinfandelic: Zinfandel Amador County 2005 - Rotwein von ZinfandelicDer Zinfandel Amador County ist ein kräftiger Zinfandel mit reichen Aromen nach klaren Himbeeren und schwarzen Kirschen zusammen mit Anklängen an Erde und Gewürzen, die die Komplexität des Weines komplettieren helfen. Er sei weich und direkt mit honigsüßen Aromen von Himbeeren, Kirschen und Gewürzen, schrieb das Wine Enthusiast Magazine m IOktober letzten Jahres. Amador County ist berühmt für den Anbau von kalifornischem Zinfandel. Die Bodenbeschafffenheit und die klimatischen Bedingungen, führen zur vollen Reife der Trauben, einer ausbalancierten Säuren und schließlich zu einem kräftigen, reichhaltigen Wein. Er eignet sich z.B. zu Fisch (gegrillt oder gebacken), Rindfleischeintopf, Nudelgerichten mit Tomaten, Geflügel und Hartkäse.    Weingut: ZinfandelicLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: ZinfandelInhalt: 0,75 l Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien
