Dark and juicy on the palate, with black cherry, cocoa dust, plum, spice box, dried fall leaves and cracked peppercorn.
Stock up on this budget-minded, food-fantastic, highly recommended wine.
About the El Dorado Hills AVA: Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, vineyards are found at elevations between 1,200 feet and 3,500 feet above sea level. Some of the best vineyards in the region are planted above 2,000 feet elevation.
This region benefits from the cool breezes that come off the mountains. These currents push hot air off the vines in the evening. The variance in temperature places stress on the vines, which in turn gives the fruit more depth and character. The soils of the region, which are magma based with high levels of acidity, also contribute to the complexity of the grapes grown here.
Dark ruby hues, from glinting edges through the darker, gem-line heart.
Black cherry, blackberry jam, blueberry, pomegranate, spice box, tobacco and black pepper.
Black cherry, cocoa dust, plum, spice box, dried fall leaves and cracked peppercorn.
Endless, with plush tannins that introduce a gradually spreading dryness.
Enjoy this budget-minded Zin with your favorite gourmet burgers, pasta with meat sauce or any backyard BBQ.
