2018 Scott Harvey Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel
Produced in the old world style of balanced wine making. We want the wine to express the Amador Zinfandel terroir with a good balance of fruit, French oak, structural tannins, and medium alcohol. The wine is made in the California Claret style reminiscent of the balanced Zinfandels produced back in the 60s and 70s. Briary varietal, layered Zinfandel with flavors of blackberry, fig, pomegranate, violets and a balanced, fleshy center with hints of coffee and bright currants. Old Vine complexity with first growth quality.
20 months in French Oak
