Scott Harvey Wines
2013 Amador County Mountain Selection Zinfandel
California: Amador County
Rejoice with me, Operative! Scott Harvey Wines is back!
We have a budget-friendly steal of a deal for you, today, from our old friends at Scott Harvey Wines! Today’s Scott Harvey Wines 2013 Amador County Mountain Selection Zinfandel is a bright basket of cherries, red fruits, spice, and earthy goodness. Be sure to stock up on this one - before we sell out.
This one is very aromatic, bright and fresh on the nose, with Bing cherry pie, raspberry, pomegranate, bramble, spice, chocolate covered black cherry, and a hint of ground pepper. Silky wine slows onto the palate, delivering flavors of spiced cherry candy, Bing cherry, cranberry, dusty bramble, spice box, leather, dried violet, espresso bean, and ground pepper.
Amador County Zinfandels are some of our favorites, and nobody does an Amador Zin better than Scott Harvey. This is one of Scott’s best budget wines to date.
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
93 Points - Tastings.com - ”Ruby black color. Earthy aromas and flavors of cashew nougat, chocolate cherries, chestnut honey, and mahogany with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium-long dried blueberries, creme Anglaise, and brown spices finish with silky, soft tannins and light oak. A precise, vivacious, fruit-driven, claret-style Zinfandel that is a pleasure to drink.”

Translucent ruby red, with pink edges. Wine settles quickly, but keeps spinning after a hearty swirl.
Bing cherry pie, raspberry, pomegranate, bramble, spice, chocolate covered black cherry, and a hint of ground pepper.
Spiced cherry candy, Bing cherry, cranberry, dusty bramble, spice box, leather, dried violet, espresso bean, and ground pepper.
Red fruits dominate at first. Then, as these fade, spice, coffee, and black pepper linger on until the eventual grippy, softly drying conclusion.
BBQ all the way! Grilled meats are the best buddies of this juicy, award-winning wine.
