The Sierra Foothills continues to be a personal favorite region of mine to find amazing deals. Located in the rolling hills at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 1500-3000 above sea level, this AVA has a history of viticulture dating back to the Gold Rush era of the 1840s. It’s home to about 100 wineries (mostly boutique and family-owned), almost all of which are too small to be picked up by national distributors – a perfect opportunity for folks like me.
Lot 683 comes to us from a boutique winery on a ranch just off Hwy 49. Produced at the crossroads of reasonable land costs, great wind/sun exposure, and prime drainage, this one hits all the check marks for “California hidden gem.” Amidst rolling oak-studded hillsides, long forgotten 49er towns, and sandy clay loam soils perfect for grapes, we hit the jackpot with this one. Who said there isn’t gold still to be found in these old hills? This is the best Zinfandel deal of the year.
This was a very good Zin, lots of red fruit, bit of pepper. Just an overall very delicious wine, went great with a ribeye on the grill
We ordered this for my father in law and he loved it! Fruity, lovely purple color and just a hint of spice.
Lighted than I like from a Zin but good value for the money
Sierra Foothills Zin
This is a corrected review after the wine had time to breathe. Medium body and a tad sweet for my taste when opened. After about 45 minutes in the glass, more body and much better.
This is a wonderful zinfandel. Enjoy it while you can.
Very Good Zin
This Zin is very nice. Not as full as others that I have purchased from Cam, but a very good value.
We really enjoyed this Zin- lighter than most, but still flavorful!
I really enjoyed this one and would buy again.
540 used to be my favorite, and we still love it!, but 683 takes its place. The flavor profile is exceptional, and it has (for me) a hint of dark cherry aftertaste. I would definitely buy more of this!
Smooth and wonderful
Another winner from CH. Great value per usual.
