Vallejo Haraszthy’s two great, greatgrandfathers, General Vallejo and Agoston Haraszthy, were Sonoma legends, making some of California’s first wines. The family continues the tradition today with their latest release, a 2009 Amador County Zinfandel from the Shenandoah Valley. Blended with 7% Mourvedre for added depth and roundess, the wine is luscious with jammy red fruit flavors. Oak-aged for 14 months.
Luscious and round on the palate with rich, deep fruit flavors. This wine offers aromas of raspberry, vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper and exhibits a nice balance of jammy, bright, cherry and raspberry flavors. Offers a beautiful bouquet and lingering finish.
Our 2009 vintage was grown in Amador County’s renowned Shenandoah Valley. Zinfandel grapes were sourced from the Scott Harvey (46%) and Spinetta Vineyards (47%). We opted to blend with Mouvedre (7%) from the Chipatchi Vineyard to add depth, roundness and complexity. The wine delivers a generous accessible style for which Amador County Zinfandel has become admired. Oak aged 14 months—80% French and 20% American.(Alcohol 15.6%)
The Amador County Zin complements any grilled meat, hearty pasta, planked salmon, or roasted chicken.
