The block called "Jack Rabbit Flat" Zinfandel comes from the Fox Creek
Vineyard, which is one of the classic ancient vineyards of Amador County that
was planted over 80 years ago. This immaculately maintained vineyard gives the
head-trained vines the ability to ripen to maximum potential. Thus, the fruit is
picked at the highest degree of ripeness, resulting in a wine of great richness and
The 2003 Jack Rabbit Flat Zinfandel is a dark ruby color that offers powerful
jammy fruit characters of blackberry, cherry and plum with peppercorn and black
pepper. On the palate, aromas of berry fruit and flavors of blackberry jam,
cherry, white pepper, cocoa, mocha and blueberry that linger through the finish.
This wine finishes with vanilla and hints of cedar and oak.
