2015 Waypoint Shake Ridge Zinfandel
There are plenty of heavy hitters (Helen Keplinger and Andy Erickson, for example) who look to Ann Kraemer’s Shake Ridge as the gold standard in Amador County. No one does it better. Our Zinfandel, from her jewel of a vineyard, is flat-out the best Waypoint has ever released, which is saying something. Boysenberries, black cherries, new leather, and a hint of white pepper, make for one succulent mouthful of wine.
