2006 Amador County Ancient Vine Zinfandel
Brick-red wine around the rim with a dark core.
Soaring nose of tobacco leaf, cigar smoke, raspberries, plums, and chocolate is just about perfectly reflected in the palate—what you smell is what you taste. The alcohol is mid-weight for a Zin at 14.7%, but the overall build of the wine is substantial with great acidity and a long finish of sweet cigar smoke and tobacco leaf mixed with spicy red fruits. There is definitely some old-world elegance to this wine!
