This region produces some of California’s biggest and burliest Zinfandels that pull no punches, all too fitting characteristics for this wine. The grapes for this wine come from a 5 acre, 87 year old dry farmed Zinfandel hilltop vineyard off Ridge Road in Amador County, near Sutter Creek. Farmer Jon Murrill oversees the vineyard and does much of the farming himself.
Enticing nose, then mouth-filling ecstasy! Mixed berries morph into earthy spice with a hint of vanilla. This vintage has lots of structure, and its velvety tannins should enable it to age beautifully in the bottle. There's a slight hint of campfire on the finish, and the way this wine transforms with food makes it a perfect choice for your dinner table.
Zinfandel with some Petite Sirah and Syrah blended in.
