2019 Foxy Lady Old Vine Zinfandel

Gold Medal with Orange County Fair Competition

Alc. 15.5% 220 cases produced $37

Our “Foxy Lady” Zinfandel comes from a vineyard that was originally planted in the 1880’s in Amador County. Like any vine that is old, it doesn’t produce a lot of fruit but the small amount that it does makes for a rich, deep and concentrated wine. Aged 22 months in select American Oak barrels, 50% were new, to enhance the wines complexity and structure. This 2019 has a dark ruby red color and a floral-spicy aroma. On the palate it is medium-full bodied, fruit forward and full of complex flavor. Look for dried red fruits and dark berries upfront and hints of sweet baking spices and pepper on the finish.

Lovers of rich, fruit-forward reds like Syrah and Petite Sirah take note, Alicante Bouschet is quite the find! The unique grape was created by French botanist Henry Bouschet in 1866 by crossing Grenache and Petit Bouschet together. It is one of the few grape varietals in the world that has red flesh inside the skins and this rare type of grape is called a teinturier. Wait, red wine grapes have clear juice? Indeed! It’s actually the grape skin that creates the color of the wine. Within this wines deep and concentrated color, discover bold fruit forward flavors of blackberry bramble, dark chocolate and subtle spicy-earthy notes on the finish.
