Shake Ridge Vineyard

Amador County

 

This is an amazing vineyard that produces incredible Zinfandel.  These 15 year old vines planted at 1750 ft. elevation see temperatures from 50º to 90º.  The vineyard site that we source from is planted to three clones, each adding a different component to the wine.  The Old Mendo selection brings brightness, the Pichetti fills out the mid palate, while the Monte Rosso adds depth.  Soils in this vineyard include Sierra uplift, volcanic, iron quarz, basalt and shale creating a real purity of fruit.  It's deep, dark and very opaque with a real WOW factor.
