Super aromatic, we can feel the mountain breezes on our faces, rustling the leaves of the pine trees and wild fruit, stirring the fresh herbs and lifting their sweet scent. Ripe mountain berries and spice notes ride on a wave of juicy minerality in this Amador County Zin, framed by soft, dusty tannins. A spicy, smoky finish is a fitting refrain for a wine that is both familiar and exotic. We love our Zinfandel’s ability to transport us to this stunningly beautiful place, as though we’re taking a romantic walk through the alpine hillsides of Amador County.

ZIN FOR THE LONG HAUL
These days, Amador County, California is producing wines that are worthy of the elevated reputation of the more famous coastal appellations. The region calls to us through its willingness to re-think the potential of Zinfandel, a story retold in the virgin, piney soils unique to the area.
Every time we visit, we are treated to a new take, a pleasant surprise. I Enjoy Long Romantic Walks Down the Wine Aisle Zinfandel retains the grape's signature wild berry character and rustic mouthfeel, but takes on a darker, more succulent flavor profile as a result of the climate - hot days and very cool nights. We are proud to offer this wild and savory version of Zinfandel, with its intensity of fruit character and dense, concentrated structure evoking its mountainous roots.
