Terra D'Oro Amador County Home Vineyard Zinfandel 750ml
The Terra d'Oro Home Vineyard Zinfandel has a crimson ruby red color with deeply layered blackberry, black cherry jam and plum aromatics. The aromas are elegant, yet complex, and lead to a supple and lush palate full of ripe fruit flavors - plum, blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry. Subtle notes of sweet vanilla and spice and hints of mocha flavor add to the complexity. This Zinfandel is well-balanced with ripe tannins that tighten the finish.
Terra d'Oro owns 800 acres of vineyards across two regions: 500 in Amador County, which are spread across five ranches, each with its own unique defining characteristics, and 300 in the Clarksburg AVA. Every acre is sustainably farmed to ensure the current and future health of the vineyards and their surrounding environments.To be able to capture all the nuances and unique characteristics of our 800 acres of vines, we built a new winemaking facility at Terra d'Oro 20 years ago. This space was carefully designed to allow us maximum flexibility in every stage of winemaking, offering us the time, space and tools to unlock the potential of each acre of our vineyards.It boasts fermenting capacity for up to 700 tons of fruit -ample room for being able to harvest and ferment fruit at its optimal ripeness, rather than when we have space for it-and a humidified barrel aging facility holds up to 6,000 barrels.That space is what allows us to work small when making the wine: half-ton basket presses, small-lot bin fermentations and plenty of barrel capacity allow us to crush, ferment and age the wine in small individual lots, then craft the perfect blends from those.If you don't have a great winemaking team, you can't make great wine. Emily Haines, our vibrant, talented and intelligent winemaker, and Cooper Carter, our intuitive, hardworking and keen assistant winemaker, are absolutely critical to the winery's success.
