2014 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Zinfandel, Amador County
Primarily produced from the vineyards located in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County. The granite soils of Amador County are well suited to producing distinctive, earthy, full bodied Zinfandels that have a wonderful character all to themselves. 2014 is a drought vintage which produced lower yields of smaller more extractive fruit.
The smell of a fresh rain on a dusty road. Chocolate covered cherries abound in this red fruit wine. Cranberry mixed with mincemeat show through this extractive claret style “Old World Style Zinfandel”. A rich mouth feel adds to the rounded complexity and long lingering finish of this medium bodied wine. Try this food friendly Zinfandel with any grilled meat or chicken or pair with pizza, pasta or burgers!
