RATINGS

94Vinous / IWC

...fabulous combination of intense, rich fruit and savory/earthy undertones. Black cherry, dried herbs, leather, licorice and sweet pipe tobacco build in the glass.

94James Suckling

Roasted Mediterranean herbs to the black cherries. Dense, with dark fruit on the palate, but quite bright and vibrant, too, with a sour black-cherry character coming through. Really juicy and flavorful, with solid, creamy tannins.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...exotic bouquet of blueberries, flowers, violets, pepper, and bouquet garni. Medium to full-bodied on the palate...terrific sense of elegance and purity, fine tannins, and a great finish.

REGION

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.
