Terra D'Oro 2014 Zinfandel, Home Vyd., Amador
Planted in 1977, Terra d'Oro's Home Vineyard is 100% sustainably farmed and comprises a mere four acres of the estate's 600 acres of vines. The vineyard is surrounded by mature Valley Oak trees with extremely deep roots that monopolize the water supply, causing the grape vines to compete for nutrients. As the vines struggle, they focus their limited energy on creating robust, intensely flavored Zinfandel grapes. Home Vineyard differs from typical Zinfandel vineyards in that it produces loose clusters with round berries, allowing the grapes to ripen uniformly. Zinfandel wines from this vineyard are exceptionally soft with a plush structure. The grapes were de-stemmed and lightly crushed into separate half-ton macro bins, where they remained in contact with the skins for the full duration of their 14-day fermentation. The solid skin caps were punched down four times daily to maximize the extraction of vivid color, flavor and tannins in the Zinfandel grapes. The wine was aged in a combination of American, Hungarian and French oak barrels (25% new) for 14 months. This 2014 was awarded a Double Gold Medal in the Amador County Fair Wine Competition. Wine Enthusiast Magazine made this an Editors' Choice scoring it 92 points and saying "Complex and well balanced, this is a great example of a wine made for meal time. Aromas of wood smoke, raspberry, cherry and plum lead to light savory, beefy, spicy notes in the flavors. The body is full, the texture broad and soothing and the finish lingers warmly."

A Fantastic Zinfandel
This is one of my favorites vineyards and this vintage does not disappoint. It is full-bodied and provides a much appreciated beverage that is very good with any food.

Go Ahead... Try and Put This One Down!
This one grabs you right from the intense bouquet of blueberry pie crust, black raspberry and toasted vanilla. Lots of sweet spice and brambly fruit on the palate leading to a fruit filled, long, dry finish. Great Zin!
