Renwood established itself as a premier producer of rich, Amador County Zins, many from old vine vineyards back in the 90's. Now it's getting renewed life with a new team taking over that includes world renowned enologist Alberto Antonini and Zinfandel expert Kent Rosenblum consulting. So far it looks like they've got a winning combination on their hands producing gems like this Premier Old Vine 2011 Zin. It's a blend of 90% Zinfandel, 5% Primitivo, 3% Syrah and 2% Barbera aged 18 months in oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "A ripe and tasty style of Zinfandel from a grand old name in the Sierra Foothills. The maple and brown sugar tones from new oak integrate well with ripe but not overripe fruit flavors. Touches of clove and black pepper come out as you sip, adding welcome nuances."
