This region produces some of California’s biggest and burliest Zinfandel’s that pulls no punches, all too fitting characteristics for this wine. Coming from a 5 acre, 87 year old dry farmed Zinfandel hilltop vineyard off Ridge Road in Amador County. Farmer Joe Aparicio, who inherited this vineyard from his dad and still does all of the farming himself, including such things as pruning, and shoot thinning, only bringing in a crew to harvest.
