Wine is ultimately about the place and there's no place like home. Our Estate Zinfandel field holds a special place and is where the Andis story took hold. We feel fortunate to have found one of the most sought-after Zinfandel vineyards in the region and to have built the winery amongst these storied vines. Planted in 1978 without the use of rootstock, these old vines produce limited yields of incredibly intense and flavorful grapes each year.
The wine exhibits what we've come to expect from this field; a big wine that exudes juiciness, complexity, classic berry and peppery aromatics, a rich mouthfeel and a flavorful finish of raspberries and cocoa. Perfectly matched with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, and hearty Italian fare.
"A robust component of smoky aromas and flavors give a large personality to this concentrated, ripe and extremely full-bodied wine. It practically spills over with juicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors and has a full but sleek mouthfeel backed by mild tannins." -Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
