Vineyard Information: This full-flavored Zin was grown at Ryan Oaks Vineyard in Amador County, an area with a rich heritage of Zinfandel, dating back two centuries.
Tasting Characteristics: Step back and get ready for this one: it’s big and bold. Dave makes Zins with character and staying power from Ryan Oaks. The 2009 Zin is a wine with serious muscle. The beautiful nose yields red plum, sweet tobacco and spice. There’s a hint of caramel to complement the plum and cherry flavors that flood the palate. Blessed with bright acidity, this is a Zinfandel to serve with food. Bring on the bold-flavored pastas and spicy ribs.
Best through 2018
