Winemaker's Notes

Terra d'Oro 2006 Zinfandel is a shining example of Amador Zinfandel. We don't have to coerce character and spice from the fruit, nor do we beat it back. Dark berry fruit is generously seasoned with characteristic Shenandoah Spice. The different oak styles lend molasses, vanilla and cinnamon to a balanced lingering finish. Sweet and spicy are two classic culinary combinations.

Our chefs match many of our 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.

Drinking exceptionally well in early 2012. Classic Amador County Zin with red-brick color, assertive nose, nice briary character and very long finish. Not strongly concentrated or very complex, but a terrific mid-priced Zin. I got a tremendous deal at $9.99 (a closeout price for the vintage) but well worth the normal price of $17-20.
