Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Terra d'Oro SHR Field Blend Zinfandel shows beautiful deep, dark color in the glass. With classic Amador characteristics of warm spices, the nose is rich with ripe dark fruit with hints of clove, vanilla, and violet perfume. Bold and rich flavors fill the mouth with ripe blackberry and mocha. The long and warm finish makes this wine a perfect companion to roasted lamb with garlic and oregano, or a basil fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes and prosciutto.

About Terra d'Oro:

For more than 150 years, fortune seekers have been lured to California's rugged Sierra Foothills. Though they once came for the gold, these days they come for the wine—Terra d'Oro, to be more specific. Handcrafted from some of Amador County's most historic vineyards, Terra d'Oro wines are rich indeed, full of the character and intensity that perfectly captures the essence of this "Land of Gold."
