Recently, the gift of wine was bestowed upon us by an individual, who knowing of our interest in wine wanted to share one of his favorites from his home town area in Amador County. The bottle of his choosing was a lovely Estate bottled 2008 Zinfandel from Convergence Vineyards. This 2008 Estate Zinfandel from Convergence was voted ‘Best Zinfandel’ in The Sierra Foothills and received 2 Gold Medals at the Calaveras Wine Competition. Not bad, and as it was enjoyed with dinner it reminded us of just how enjoyable a good Zinfandel can be.
To quote their description: Brambly blackberry fruit mixes with smoky spice for a classically styled Zinfandel. A big rich mouth feel and bracing acidity assures years of age-ability. “Life would be hell without Zinfandel”.
With our rating of a 7 and a price point that has it only $1 off being a **** wine this is a great WW drinker. We will definitely be looking to this area for some more nice surprises and in particular from Convergence Vineyards.
Happy Tasting Adventures,
Kiwi & Koala
