"The flamboyant, fragrant 2004 Zinfandel Grandmere (2,000 cases produced) boasts plenty of berry fruit, pepper, spice, and earth as well as loads of glycerin, a voluptuous texture, and a heady, pure, rich finish. It will drink well for 3-4 years."
A deep garnet red with brick tones on the edge. The aroma of this wine welcomes the drinker with its soft, yet complex fruit. Blackberry and holiday spice mid-palate essences balance the wine as it finishes with a rich texture of vanilla and dark red fruits. The full bodied tannin structure is built for a lasting finish.
Our Grandmere Zinfandel represents a blend of the finest Zinfandel vineyards that reside throughout the hillsides of Amador County's gold country. These vineyards provide us with fruit from ancient vines. We choose the name Grandmere (or "Grandmother") because fruit from these vineyards result in a wine that is consistently warm and friendly, gracefully mature and immediately inviting.
