"Upon first taste it is profoundly clear why after nearly a century and a half, Zinfandel vineyards are still being planted throughout Amador County. This hand crafted Zin showcases rich, ripe blackberries and plums infused with clove, vanilla, and anise spice. A powerful, yet balanced mouthfeel gives way to a silky smooth finish of spicy oak and juicy black cherry. Sweet and spicy are two classic culinary combinations. This classic Zinfandel makes an excellent match for a great many dishes, ranging from barbeque chicken in chipotle dipping sauce to pan-seared filet mignon, or just an old fashioned juicy cheeseburger or your favorite pizza.
