Varietal: Rose

Region: Amador

Region Description:

Amador County CA is located in the Sierra Foothills AVA. Like so many of the vineyards in California, after prohibition Amador lied dormant until the 1960's. The soils in Amador are in the present day, Amador stands out against its neighboring regions by growing grapes in a lower elevation. All though this flat region cools down at night, the lower elevation accounts for more heat during the day, and thus riper fruit. 75 % of the grapes planted in Amador are zinfandel, and is the variety Amador gains reputation from. The Amador Zinfandel is distinctive, with high alcohol, fruity or jammy tastes, with a briar smell. Besides Zinfandel, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc do very well.
