At Montevina Winery we’re known for our Zinfandels. This particular wine is a blend of Amador and Lodi appellation fruit. Our local Amador County has long been thought of as an ideal growing area for Zinfandel due to its shallow, decomposed granite soils and warm climate. The Lodi region boasts a classic Mediterranean climate. The dry warm summer days allow Lodi grapes to develop full ripe fruit flavors while the distinctive breezes maintain the natural acidity for structure and complexity in the finished wines.
After over 20 vintages, Winemaker Jeff Meyers has learned many things about Zinfandel. One of those things is that there is definitely more than one way to Zin. This is one of the easiest. Like a pair of worn-in blue jeans. Comfortable, fits well and just right for almost any occasion. Fresh, jammy aromas of ripe black fruit with a dash of pepper gives your palate early warning of the ripe forward fruit and spice flavors in the glass. Soft tannins provide a smooth finish...just as this wine does to any day of the week.
