Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Terra d'Oro Amador County Zinfandel showcases the joy of Zin, with a kick! The nose is welcoming with aromas of cloves, allspice, and a dash of cinnamon, all sprinkled over a bowl of ripe blackberries. The dark, juicy fruit continues in the mouth, as plums and black cherries enter the melange. The wine finishes with a true taste of Amador County as the "Shenandoah Spice" lingers along the warm toasty notes of vanilla and molasses. This Zin showcases the unique characters found in Amador County, bringing them together with balance and respect. Enjoy!
