95Vinous / IWC

...stunning wine...inky, beautifully textured red that hits all the right notes...heady and explosive, with tons of energy, with impeccable balance and a level of sheer allure that makes it absolutely irresistible...

94+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of crushed raspberries, black cherries and warm plums plus hints of wild blueberries, spice box and roses. The palate is full-bodied with a firm frame of very ripe, plush tannins and oodles of freshness lifting the red and black berry flavors to a long perfumed finish.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...ripe, full-bodied red that has good acidity and purity, classic notes of black and blue fruits, lots of minerality, and more nuanced notes of liquid violets, smoked earth, and spice...layered, ripe, balanced red...

93Wine Spectator

Dark and brooding, with a polished yet muscular backbone, wrapped in rich and layered blackberry and plum flavors, accented by white pepper, toasted sage and peppered beef hints...


United States, California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County

Sierra Foothills AVA is in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and it includes parts of eight counties. With total acreage of 2.6 million acres, and nearly 6,000 vineyard acres, it is one of the largest appellations in California. Wine grapes were planted in the foothills during the Gold Rush in the mid-19th century and the appellation was officially recognized in 1987. There are five sub-appellations within the Sierra Foothills region, and more than 100 wineries, most small and family-owned. Zinfandel is the most successful wine grape in this region, though Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are also planted.
