Renwood’s Premier Old Vine Zinfandel is a compilation of grapes from some of the most exceptional iconic vineyards. This wine expresses itself aromatically with nuances of fresh blackberry and cranberry with ever so subtle hints of savory dried herbs. The tannin structure is finely polished, and its juicy backbone is the major player from front to back in this classic Zinfandel. Well-balanced acidity ensures it will age famously over the next several years.
“With Amador County being one of the oldest wine growing regions in California, a number of the vineyards that we harvest are over 100 years old. Our subtle use of new French oak seamlessly integrates hints of exotic vanilla with ripe, juicy berry fruit. Aromas and flavors of fresh blackberry, intense brambleberry, and dark cocoa powder are all framed by velvety tannins that create a silky, lingering finish. Drink now-2025.”
“($20) Editors’ Choice: Intense ripe fruit flavors meet spicy smoky complexity in this full-bodied, concentrated and well-structured wine. It has a deep blueberry and blackberry core surrounded by hints of black pepper, baking spices and wood smoke that keep it interesting from the first whiff to the lingering finish. 92 points.” --Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, April 2019.
