This is a new style of Amador County Zinfandel for us that is made in an older historic-style reminiscent of wines from 1852 when Zin first arrived in California. The grapes were partially-crushed, partially whole-cluster, and fermented in a closed tank where there was some carbonic fermentation. This created an enjoyable and quaffable Zinfandel that has a beautiful floral quality. It also shows savory notes of violet, mountain sage, and yerba buena. Drink it at a cooler temperature than you might normally drink red wine, even a little chilled on a warm day.
