2014 Aparicio Zinfandel
Our singular wine from Amador County, the Aparicio Vineyard Zinfandel sings the praises of this historic region. Fragrant violets awaken the nose, followed by warm notes of caramel, vanilla and black fruit. On the palate, the fruit comes alive with black cherry and tart raspberries. A touch of cocoa and oak spice lends depth and complexity as the flavors crescendo into a long, sweet finish. This wine is perfect for dining, with plump, juicy character that complements but never overpowers the meal. Serve up a big plate of pasta or herb-roasted chicken with this lovely, food-friendly wine.
