Golden-straw colour. White flowers, pear and grapefruit on the nose.
In the mouth, tropical fruit notes of mango and pineapple with silky mid-palate suggesting lemon custard lightly drizzled atop lightly toasted brioche. With a delicate acidity that lends a refreshing minerality, the wine is barrel-fermented and aged 19 months in 39% new French (Burgundian) oak, resulting in a pleasing plushness that rounds to a complete, satisfying finish.
The mild spring and cooler summer in Monterey County give a chance of our Pinot Noir grapes to achieve the optimum maturity with great balance of acidity and flavor, and with deep color that is characteristic of Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balance by the French toasted oak aromas. Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel
A key signature of Amador County Zins is a brambly, wild berry character. Four Vines Maverick Zin packs plenty of bramble with notes of tobacco, leather and black pepper. Tannins are well integrated and the wine is nicely balanced. It’s full-bodied with enough acidity to pair well with food. Think big flavors and rich meats when serving this wine. Pour alongside smoked ribs, lamb or a juicy grilled steak.
