Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d’Oro 2018 Home Vineyard Zinfandel opens with sweet aromas of caramel, cocoa, plums, baking spice, cherry pie, olive and red fruit notes. The palate opens with an elegant entry leading to a juicy core of red raspberries and black cherry. The finish is long with silky refined tannins and hints of mocha.
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1977, our Home Vineyard is 100% sustainably farmed and comprises a mere four acres of the Terra d’Oro estate’s 600 acres of vines. The vineyard is surrounded by mature Valley Oak trees with extremely deep roots that monopolize the water supply, causing the grapevines to compete for nutrients. As the vines struggle, they focus their limited energy on creating robust, intensely flavored Zinfandel grapes. Home Vineyard differs from typical Zinfandel vineyards in that it produces loose clusters with round berries, allowing the grapes to ripen uniformly. Zinfandel wines from this vineyard are exceptionally soft with a plush structure.
Production Notes
Handpicked in the early hours of the morning, grapes for this wine were de-stemmed and lightly crushed, remaining on the skins for a total of 15 days to extract vivid color, flavor and tannin from the fruit.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were fermented in stainless steel before being aged oak barrels, 30 percent of which were new. 100% Zinfandel
Food Pairing Notes
A bold, fruit-forward wine, the Terra d’Oro 2018 Home Vineyard Zinfandel pairs nicely with comfort food such as a juicy burger topped with aged cheddar and Applewood smoked bacon.
