Terra d'Oro SHR Zinfandel 2000
from Sierra Foothills, California
Montevina's 2000 School House Road Zinfandel boasts a fascinating aroma of ripe blackberry and plum fruit with a distinctive roasted aroma reminiscent of syrah-based red wines from the Rhone Valley of France. On the palate, the wine is soft and lushly fruited, with rich, toasty, black fruit flavors. This truly delicious red wine makes an ideal accompaniment to barbecued chicken, roast beef, and grilled steak or lamb.
Before Prohibition, Italian immigrant grapegrowers in California often interplanted different grape varieties and produced "field blended" red wines. Inspired by this tradition, Montevina interplanted 40 acres of its estate vineyard, near an old schoolhouse on Shenandoah School Road in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, to 80% zinfandel, 13% petite syrah, and 7% barbera in order to produce this unique, delicious red wine.

Impressive wine. Reasonably priced. Fruity yet dry character. Nice complement to meat dishes especially barbeque and prime rib. Also a good sit-on-the-porch and sip wine too.

I am drinking it right now. A little dry on the palate, it has a strong blackberry presence, oaky and rich also, modest sweetness, but not sweet enough to become distracting. This wine is nice enough to sip, but it really goes well with food, particularly pasta dishes I've tried, and no doubt it would sing with some meat dishes also! Well worth the money spent.

Impressive wine. It became one of my favorites immediately. A steal at around $20
