RATINGS

94Vinous / IWC

White flowers, crushed rocks, lavender and purple/black fruit blossom in a dark, brooding wine long on personality and pure class.

93Wine Spectator

Bold, rich and layered, with firm tannins cloaking the juicy blackberry and wild berry notes, accented by touches of berry jam, anise and cedar.

91Stephen Tanzer

Densely packed and energetic, conveying a strong impression of minerality to go with its dark fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors.

REGION

United States, California, Sierra Foothills, Fair Play

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.
