Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d’ Oro 2015 Home Vineyard Zinfandel opens with sweet aromas of spicy oak intertwined with jammy plum notes. The palate is plush and dense, bursting with lavish plum flavors. Another signature year from this vineyard, the 2015 vintage is approachable and smooth, thanks to its ripe tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1977, our Home Vineyard is 100% sustainably farmed and comprises a mere four acres of the Terra d’ Oro estate’s 600 acres of vines. The vineyard is surrounded by mature Valley Oak trees with extremely deep roots that monopolize the water supply, causing the grape vines to compete for nutrients. As the vines struggle, they focus their limited energy on creating robust, intensely flavored Zinfandel grapes. Home Vineyard differs from typical Zinfandel vineyards in that it produces loose clusters with round berries, allowing the grapes to ripen uniformly. Zinfandel wines from this vineyard are exceptionally soft with a plush structure.
Production Notes
The grapes for this limited-release wine were de-stemmed and lightly crushed into separate half-ton macro bins, where they remained in contact with the skins for the full duration of their 14-day fermentation. The solid skin caps were punched down four times daily to maximize the extraction of vivid color, flavor and tannins in the Zinfandel grapes.
Winemaker Notes
The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 25 percent of which were new, for 14 months.
Food Pairing Notes
A bold, fruit-forward wine, the Terra d’ Oro 2015 Home Vineyard Zinfandel begs for comfort food, like a juicy burger topped with aged cheddar and Applewood smoked bacon.
