At Montevina and in Amador County, Zinfandel is what they do best. Shallow
topsoils, granite hardpan, hot summer days, and cool summer nights make a
fabulous home for this varietal. Hand selected every year from their many
lots of Zin, Montevina Terra d'Oro Zinfandel is the flagship of their Zinfandel
Dark smoky molasses and hickory toast aromas warm the nose.
Blackberry flavors are spiced with pepper, clove, and anise like homemade
preserves. A long lingering caramel finish touched by dark toasty oak.
Sweet and spicy are two classic culinary combinations. Montevina's chefs
match many of their favorite dishes with this classic Zinfandel, ranging from barbeque
short ribs in chipotle dipping sauce to pan-seared filet mignon, or just an old
fashioned juicy cheeseburger.
