2018 Portalupi Zinfandel Shake Ridge Ranch Vineyard Amador County
Our 2019 Zinfandel grapes come from one of the most highly sought after vineyards in California. Shake Ridge Vineyard is located in the Sierra Foothills along a ridge 1,650–1,810 feet above sea level, overlooking the town of Sutter Creek. Renowned grower, Ann Kraemer is one of the most highly respected figures in the wine world. Stylistically, a tribute to the early Zinfandel pioneers, with toasty American Oak aging, imparting a subtle, slightly creamy texture. Very smooth!
Bright acidity coupled with flavors of raspberry, vanilla and black pepper. Medium tannins lead to a round, glycerol mouthfeel. Warm and inviting, begging for a great BBQ.
14 months, 40 % New American Oak, 40% 1 year, 20% 2 year. 15.9% Alcohol
