A savory trio of Amador's classic varietals complimented with a Renwood Winery corkscrew. This delightful trio features our newest releases of our soft and juicy 2016 Barbera, the sassy and spicy 2016 Tempranillo, and our famous, 2015 Premier Old Vine Zin. This tempting crowd pleaser is one of our most popular holiday gifts.
The inaugural vintage of our Estate Vineyard Barbera is a voluptuous wine with rich full flavors and silky supple tannins. Though these vines are young, they are exceptional at showcasing one of Amador County’s most extraordinary varietals. This lively wine exudes aromas of blueberry pie, red apple, fresh orange and black cherry followed by hints of sweet oak. Silky on the palate, the tannins are refined and perfectly balanced with the wine’s natural acidity making it succulent and mouthwatering all at once. Bright and opulent flavors of red plum, black currant, cranberry and rosemary, give way to subtle secondary notes of baking spices and white pepper. The long elegant finish creates a wine that is multi-layered, luscious, and exceptionally juicy. Laced with vitality and freshness, this wine is excellent on its own or with a hearty steak dinner.
The 2016 Tempranillo shows focus and density with rich aromas black cherry, plum and fine herbs that lead way to a beautifully complex and interesting wine. This Iberian beauty is texturally bold and accompanied by marble smooth tannins. Dark and full bodied with well-balanced natural acidity, this wine is loaded with juicy ripe cherry, black currant, dried fig and a hint of vanilla. Seamless from front to back and graced with ultra-fine grain tannins, this wine will age well over the next 10 years.
Our Premier Old Vine Zinfandel is a compilation of some of the most exceptional icon vineyards that we source from. The wine expresses itself aromatically with nuances of fresh blackberry and cranberry with ever so subtle hints of savory dried herbs. The tannin structure is finely polished, and its juicy backbone is the major player from front to back in this classic beauty. Well balanced acidity ensures it will age famously over the next several years. Drink now through 2022.
This set includes one 2016 Barbera, one 2016 Tempranillo, one 2015 Old Vine Zinfandel and a Renwood Winery corkscrew.
