notes: , , , , , ,

The dark garnet color and weightiness of this wine reflect the iconic Amador County Zinfandel and Barbera wine grapes. Flavors of fig and anise develop in the front of the palate followed by chocolate and a hint of pepper in the mid palate. The wine has wonderful brightness which continues throughout resulting in a wonderful long juicy finish.

Rating/Awards:
3/3 stars from The Washington Post: "Wow. This modestly priced wine tastes like something twice as expensive, maybe more. It is racy and energetic, with black- and red-fruit flavors, great body and a smooth, lingering finish. Try it with burgers or steaks, stir fries or stews. Amaze your friends with a stylish selection from a country whose wine they haven’t tried before." - Dave McIntyre

"This is a more refined (and oakier) wine than the regular 2015 red reviewed. Showing better mid-palate finesse and precision, it adds a medley of blue fruit flavors and a hint of herbs. It finishes tight, with some acidity, leading to a juicy finish. It pulls in the oak rather well with time."

Dark purple-red, with a garnet edge. Fresh and fruit driven with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Some cherry notes on the nose. A combination of forest fruits with blackberries and mulberries. Savory aromatic spices of anise and nutmeg with some coffee and chocolate notes. Silky, delicate tannins; good acidity and well balanced. Ages beautifully with the berry notes becoming more prominent over time. It has decades to give, cellar up to 20+ years.

"This blend of three indigenous grapes from Armenia is deep garnet in color, with aromas of raspberry, blueberry and violet. It is pleasantly tart on the palate, offering flavors of cherry, cranberry, chocolate and pencil lead. Very smooth in the mouth, it has a finish that leaves a lasting hint of smokiness."
