Zealous for Zin? Then you’ll be amped for Amador. Known for intense, earthy qualities derived from fiery red volcanic soils, amazing Amador comes to life in our Maverick Zinfandel. Innovation, exceptionalism and excellence are the American qualities you’ll find sip after sip. Designed for epicures who have a bit of an edge, this wine shines after the road trip is over and the live music has begun.
Mavericks don’t follow the herd. That’s why we took our search for exceptional Zinfandel to the Sierra Foothills in California’s “Gold Country”. At 1200 feet in elevation, we discovered dry-farmed, head-pruned, old vine vineyards which produce incredibly concentrated fruit. Four Vines Maverick Zinfandel hails from these long-standing vineyards, our youngest Zin vineyard is 50 years old!
A key signature of Amador County Zins is a brambly, wild berry character. Four Vines Maverick Zin packs plenty of bramble with notes of of tobacco, leather and black pepper. Tannins are well integrated and the wine is nicely balanced. It’s full-bodied with enough acidity to pair well with food.
Think big flavors and rich meats when serving this wine. Pour alongside smoked ribs, lamb or a juicy grilled steak.
