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.
Not normally a Zin fan but...
Not normally a huge Zin fan but...me and my man gave this bottle 5* for the price point and drinkability. Let it breath a bit before you savor this one. This here mate, it is good!
A most pleasant Zin, but it does benefit from being opened & aired -- maybe even a full decanting until it's had time to take off a rough edge or two settling in the bottle. Bought a half-dozen; should have bought an entire case!
Lovely, subtle, nuanced Zin.
After a couple of days of rest after delivery this wine is super. Not huge, not light. not too berryish, not too tannic, just right. Well worth the price. I am thinking about ordering another case! Sierra Foothills is an under rated bargain!
Very, Very Nice!
I thoroughly enjoy Zins. This sample from the Sierra Foothills is a hearty, full-flavored Zin. I was pleasantly surprised when I first tasted the wine. I'm ordering a second case today. The price is fantastic.
Great Wine and reasonbly priced
We received 2 bottles in our club shipment, then promptly ordered a case!
Love this wine
Very legit zin. Deep and rich but not harsh. Excellent with grilled meats or a good strong chèvre.
I'm not going to buy Zin if given the choice but this was included in my club shipment and I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed this with some Zin loving buddies and they said an excellent wine at a great price! I'm 4 stars.
Good all around zin
As good as Lodi?
A bit spicy, a bit hot, but smoothes out with air. Nice with grilled meats and pasta. A good mid-week selection.
Great deal for the price. Enjoyed last night with chimichurri pork recipe...perfect!
