How many different Zinfandel wineries are there?
Amador Foothill Ferreo Vineyard Shenandoah Valley 2006 Zinfandel, $20.00-$22.99, 88 points, is almost a ZINFANDEL Rosé, with a ruby color, an earthy nose, a light body with a hint of spritz, and a finish of East-spice. This is no kind of Zinfandel I've ever tried, more like a French red-wine of HAUT-MEDOC than a Californian Zinfandel.
I liked this wine, quaff-able, delicate, and mildly floral, but again, this is not what you or I might expect from a Californian Zinfandel.
The Amador Foothill handles the 14.5% alcohol easily, and paired well with a spinach-artichoke dip with a meaty flat-bread.
