Winemaker's Notes

"This two-region Zin is from Atlas Peak and Amador County. It shows a really great Zin quality in the leathery spiciness that accompanies the berry flavors, and in the smooth, polished tannins. Amador seems to bring wildness, while Napa brings elegance. The result is a great Zinfandel at a great price."
-Wine Enthusiast

Antique Vines Zinfandel is a blend of two "Antique Vine" vineyards–one on Atlas Peak in Napa Valley, the other in Amador County located in the Sierra Foothills.

The term "antique" is characterized by excellence, appeal and importance. For us the name "Antique Vines" reflects our elevated esteem and reverence for old vineyards. The name demonstrates the endurance and quality of fruit the vines produce.

This Zinfandel opens with aromas of mature fruit and sandalwood which lead to ripe berry flavors sweetened with creamy vanilla nuances. This wine is big, rich, dense, and nicely balanced.
