Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Hand-selected grapes from our prestigious Amador vineyards comprise the Terra d’Oro County Zinfandel, the winery’s flagship wine. Shallow topsoils, granite hardpan, hot summer days and cool summer nights make a remarkable home for the winemaker’s favorite varietal. Head-trained and spur-pruned, the Terra d’Oro vineyards receive optimal sunlight and deliver a controlled crop.
Production Notes
The Terra d’Oro Amador County Zinfandel displays the classic characteristics unique to this region. Enticing aromas of clove, cracked pepper, black cherry, smoke, violets, licorice, black olive and sage lead to an elegant entry of cherry and licorice on the palate. This opulent wine has a round, generous mouthfeel with a blackberry driven midpalate and velvety tannins leading to a long finish of baking spice. Bold and intriguing, the 2016 Terra d’Oro Amador County Zinfandel is truly a taste of its region.
Winemaker Notes
At Terra d’Oro, the Zinfandel grapes are carefully hand-picked and brought to the winery for processing. Cold-soaking for up to three days allows water to break down the cell walls of the grape solids, extracting flavors, color and aromas. After gentle tank pressing, the wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak (25% new) for 14 months resulting in subtle caramel notes with indications of exotic spice.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with eggplant parmesan or grilled lamb skewers with a blackberry reduction.
