Winemaker's Notes:

Terra d'Oro Amador Zinfandel exhibits the classic Sierra Foothills Zinfandel characteristics that are unique to this region. This savory zinfandel displays vibrant aromas of spicy clove, allspice, mocha, dark cherry and hints of vanilla. Flavors of juicy blackberries and plums, white pepper and cinnamon excite the senses with a round mouthfeel of well integrated tannins on the finish.

This wine is rich and powerful, but incredibly well-balanced and pairs well with a multitude of dishes. Terra d'Oro Amador Zinfandel is the perfect complement to chile-glazed flank steak or harissa pork roast.

Blend: 94% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Teroldego
