Tasting Notes:
Produced in the Old World style of balanced wine making, this Zinfandel was made from grapes grown on 143 year old vines from Harvey Vineyards’ Vineyard 1869. Winemaker Scott Harvey wanted the wine to be a pure expression of the Amador County terroir and OLD WORLD wine making techniques with a good balance of fruit, structural tannins and medium alcohol. This is a briary Zinfandel that was aged in French oak. Deep raspberry, allspice, cloves and cinnamon, balanced with a fleshy center and hints of coffee, leather and bright currants. It shows old vine complexity and first growth quality.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Zinfandel is big and bold with high acidity and tannin which means it can stand up to meat dishes and cut through fat providing a perfect balance of flavors. Pairs beautifully with BBQ pork ribs, roast leg of lamb, steak, Italian sausage, venison and brisket. Also try tomato based pasta dishes such as lasagna or spaghetti, beef stew or chili and cheeses such as Parmesan, aged Cheddar or Gouda, Asiago or Pepper Jack.
