Terra d'Oro 2005 Zinfandel is a shining example of Amador Zinfandel. Montevina doesn't have to coerce character and spice from the fruit, nor do they beat it back. Dark berry fruit is generously seasoned with characteristic Shenandoah spice. American oak lends molasses and barbecue sauce
and French oak adds vanilla and cinnamon to a balanced lingering finish.
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 to just an old fashioned juicy cheeseburger.
"Medium crimson hue. Nose of cherry and rhubarb with a whiff of spicy oak. Very spicy on entry with violet and black fruit flavors and loads of oaky tannins... maple and clove accents."
