"It only seemed fitting to acquire a new estate in the Motherland of Zinfandel: Gold Rush Country. Amador County was the landing spot for the aspiring miners during the Gold Rush in 1800s. Nowadays, we harvest a different kind of "gold" from these hills - the sweet juice from the vines miners brought with them and planted.
Planted at 1,500 feet on the volcanic, granitic hillside near our new property in Amador, the Cobb Vineyard Zinfandel is an homage to Buck Cobb, owner of the vineyard and from whom we purchased the Karly property. The rocky conditions and more extreme weather (including snow!) in this dry-farmed vineyard make for a hearty, robust Zinfandel."
"The 2018 Zinfandel Buck Cobb Vineyard is bold and savory, with plenty of cedar, licorice, dried herbs, mint and pine character. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2018 pulses with real energy. Expressive, perfumed earthy notes add the closing shades of nuance." Antonio Galloni 91-93+ Points
