2013 Old Vine Zinfandel, Original Grandpère Vineyard

Amador County
''High in oak and high in ripeness with adjuncts of dark chocolate and touches of bacon yet a wine of steady and surprisingly deep, blackberry fruit, this emphatically rich effort earns good marks for its continuity and insistent varietal focus. It is a weighty wine, to be sure, but it is not at all clumsy and it is a tasty reminder that well-made Zinfandel can, in fact, be big, balanced and explicitly fruity all at once.''

Planted in 1869, the Original Grandpère Vineyard is one of the oldest documented Zinfandel vineyards in America. The California State Fair named it Vineyard of the Year in 2016. Farmed by only four families over its 145-year history, the vineyard produces a very small amount of fruit each year and every ton is prized by winemakers.

 

Andis is one of only four wineries fortunate enough to get fruit from this vineyard. Our 2013 offering features a rich mouthfeel with flavors of chocolate berries, blueberries, dark fruits, and peppercorns. The finish is long and lingering with spice and creamy oak. An incredible companion to grilled lamb, pork loin, and duck confit.
