2017 Gluttony Zinfandel Michael David
This region produces some of California’s biggest and burliest Zinfandels that pull no punches, all too fitting characteristics for this wine. The grapes for this wine come from a 5 acre, 90 year old dry farmed Zinfandel hilltop vineyard off Ridge Road in Amador County, near Sutter Creek. Farmer Jon Murrill oversees the vineyard and does much of the farming himself.
This burly Zin is worth the indulgence. Deep purple in colour, our 2017 Gluttony Zinfandel opens with tempting notes of pomegranate, ripe berry and hickory on the nose. Bold and booming flavours of plum, boysenberry and spice stand out while the extended barrel aging and mild tannins lend to a lush, lingering finish.
