Terra d'Oro Home Vineyard Zinfandel 2017
|Region||California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County|
The Terra d'Oro 2017 Home Vineyard Zinfandel opens with sweet aromas of caramel, cocoa, plums, baking spice, cherry pie, olive and red fruit notes. The palate opens with an elegant entry leading to a juicy core of red raspberries and black cherry. The finish is long with silky refined tannins and hints of mocha. A bold, fruit-forward wine, the Terra d'Oro 2017 Home Vineyard Zinfandel pairs nicely with comfort food such as a juicy burger topped with aged cheddar and Applewood smoked bacon.
This wine tastes like ripe berries and black pepper and has a great structure of fruit acidity and firm tannins that make it appetizing. Dried cherries, cured beef and a whiff of dried herbs create good complexity in the aromas and flavors.
A perky red, with medium-bodied wild berry, underbrush and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2022.
