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.
A Zin that Zings
This Zin takes me back a few decades to first Zins I ever tried. It's very good and a standout bargain at the price even by CH standards.
Great bottle, full of earthy dark fruit flavor. Normally I'm scared off of wines this high in alcohol, but this one doesn't taste hot at all. Really nice balance. Great value!
Really Nice Amador Zin
Really nice Amador zin at a great price. Lighter in body than a typical Sonoma/Dry Creek zin but just as good in it's own right. Will buy more.
Enjoy a lot of Zin's and this one fit in well, harsh early on but overall good.
Great Zin for the price
Great, everyday wine for enjoying with your friends and family. Good complexity and finish.
Great Zin at an outstaning price.
Our favorite Zin at CH. Well balanced with a nice finish. I would decanter and enjoy.
Best Zin for the money!
I use an aerator and drink up this fruity goodness!
Another Great Zin from Cameron Hughes!
This is another excellent zinfandel in the CH lineup! Hard to believe you can get it for such a price! Buy all you can!
Had this wine with steak and each time I took a drink the taste profile changed! So good! Had to buy some more bottles of this.
Full flavor Zinfandel!
