Scott Harvey - 1869 Zinfandel 2014
2015 SCOTT HARVEY VINEYARD 1869 ZINFANDEL, AMADOR COUNTY
93 Pts Wine Magazine
Produced in the old world style of balanced wine making. We want the wine to express the Amador Zinfandel terroir with a good balance of fruit, French oak, structural tannins and medium alcohol. The wine is made in the California Claret style reminiscent of the balanced Zinfandels produced back in the 60’s and 70’s. Briary varietal layered Zinfandel with aromas and flavors of blackberry, fig, pomegranate, violets, and a balanced, fleshy center with hints of coffee and bright currants. Old Vine complexity and first growth quality. 68% 147 year old vines from the Harvey Vineyard known as “Vineyard 1869”, 11% Zinfandel from the Manby Vineyard, 5% Zinfandel from the DeMille/Norton Vineyard, 11% Syrah from York Vineyard in Fiddletown and 5% Barbera from the Coon Vineyard.
