    VINEYARD INFORMATION:

    Hand-selected grapes from our prestigious Amador vineyards comprise the Terra d’Oro County Zinfandel, the winery’s flagship wine. With a large majority of grapes sourced from our own estate vineyards, 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.

    WINEMAKING:

    At Terra d’Oro, the Zinfandel grapes are carefully picked at night and brought to the winery for processing. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak (24% new) for 18 months resulting in subtle caramel notes with indications of exotic spice.

    TASTING NOTES:

    The 2017 Terra d’Oro Amador County Zinfandel displays the classic characteristics unique to this region. Enticing aromas of clove, cinnamon, anise and dark fruits are accompanied by hints of pastry, dried oregano, thyme and fresh dough notes that round out the intense aromatics. This wine boasts an elegant entry with a generous, juicy midpalate and a long finish. Bold and intriguing, the 2017 Terra d’Oro Amador County Zinfandel is truly a taste of its region. Pair this wine with eggplant parmesan or grilled lamb skewers with a blackberry reduction.

    An attractive, sunbaked earthiness gives this full-bodied wine a distinctive edge as it pours out deep blackberry and grilled plum flavors that ride the mouthfilling texture. It’s a warming, hearty wine with personality. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 90 points
