2018 Sierra Foothills Estate Zinfandel
Zinfandel •Furrow Vineyard
California: Sierra Foothills
Into the groove
We offer a lot of Zin, but this was an easy pick for our second WIA. FURROW, baby! When you need a reliable, inexpensive, elegant fruit bomb fix, this is the ticket! There’s a good reason we loaded a few cases into our own personal stashes.
ANYONE who enjoys Zinfandel even in the slightest capacity NEEDS to get your hands on this. For $15, it seems criminally undervalued. NOTHING competes at this price in the Zin realm. More jam-packed than the “Tahoe Tweezer” Phish did in 2013 - which, if you didn’t know, is pretty darn tasty.
Now, the shocking truth is, we put this in the same style as a Turley or Martinelli Zin. Seriously. Crazy intense, deeply concentrated red fruit LEAPs from the glass. Straight-line performance, full throttle the entire way, and totally satisfying, with sweet red raspberry and strawberry jam, some exotic vanilla bean, a sprinkle of 5-spice, and fresh pie crust. All silky and soft and mouth-filling, BUT it has a beautiful vein of acidity too, so it does not come off all sticky and thick. Really, just a well-made, super crowd-pleaser.
After this hits your doorstep, you’ll taste it and think “aw jeez, I should’ve bought wayyyy more of that!”
Pop a few in your locker and firm up your winter stash. At this price, you can load up and share all you want with friends and family. Lock it down while it’s here.
With this one, we KNOW you will end up emailing us asking for more, and sadly we will need to say no to every one of you as deals this good just do not last.
Inky deep purple core, glowing crimson reflections, within a vibrant ruby circumference
