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!

Oh, the wine is ripe and has plenty of muscle, but it is easily the most mannerly of the Terra d'Oro contingent, and its balance is what separates it from the bunch. It will drink well in the near term with hearty, well-seasoned pork roasts, but it should age nicely and will keep comfortably for three to five years."

Zinfandel remains the grape of choice here, followed by Rhone Blends. Volcanic...Read More About Sierra Foothills
