This Amador County Zin is everything you'd expect including this regions' signature of abundant pepper and spice immaculately integrated into this exquisite wine. Big and rich, it's filled with aromas and flavors of raspberries and cranberries with nuances of chocolate and cherries. Its well-rounded tannins and exquisite structure provide a long, lingering dark, fruit finish. The dark fruits, sweetness and peppery spices in this Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel will pair perfectly with a creamy and herbaceous fettuccine pork Bolognese or a rich, braised beef dish with lots of hearty vegetables.

Wine Enthusiast

Strong and assaultive now in massive fruit, spice, oak and minerals, this old vine Zin offers a flood of wild blackberries, mulberries, red currants, licorice, cocoa, violets, black pepper and sandalwood, and the list goes on and on. It's tannic and dry and very complicated, a Zin that changes by the second. Should last for many years. Now, with rich fare, and through 2019.

Score: 92. —Steve Heimoff, April 01, 2010.
