The 2006 Fiddletown Zinfandel offers aromas and flavors that best express the
appellation. These wines always have a characteristic note of pine and cedar.
This is a huge wine with medium tannins and flavors of dark chocolate,
toasted oak, and cooked blackberries.
The Fiddletown appellation is the oldest AVA (American Viticultural
Appellation) in Amador County, California. The vineyards have a higher
elevation (up to 1,800 feet) and enjoy the perfect combination of hot days and
cooler nights – more so than most Amador County vineyards. These growing
conditions allow for maximum ripeness and balance in the fruit. Many feel
that these are the best grapes in Amador County.
