El Dorado County, nestled in California’s Sierra Foothills, has a rich history of wine dating back to the 1800s. The region has many high-elevation vineyards on steep slopes that benefit from warm summer days and cool nights. There are nearly 100 varietals grown in El Dorado vineyards, but the region is especially known for the rich, textured and spice-driven Zinfandel wines it produces.
Most of the grapes that go into this Zinfandel come from El Dorado County, where warm days and cool nights allow grapes to slowly reach optimum maturity while maintaining excellent natural acidity. This, combined with minimal irrigation, results in a balanced wine, rich with varietal character. This wine spends over a year in neutral oak barrels before being bottled.
Medium to full-bodied with intense dark berry fruit, black pepper and spice aromas, this Zinfandel is bold, textured, and rustic with concentrated flavors that pack a punch!
