A multiple medal winner for the 4th year in a row! Our 2008 Amador County Zinfandel from Oakmont Vineyards continues a tradition of excellence. On a strikingly beautiful hilltop above the Cosumnes River, winegrower Vicki Delpart personally tends her 36-year old vines and consistently provides outstanding fruit. Winemaker Mark McKenna eagerly looks forward to receiving Vicki's grapes; our wines from her vineyard's granite-based Sierra soils are always luscious, fruit-filled, balanced and full bodied.

This 2008 Zinfandel is robust and hearty. Aromas are of raspberries, black cherries, slow-cooked fruits and clove. The wine is rich, full-bodied; flavors of pomegranate juice, cherries and strawberries lead seamlessly to a long finish that is firm and smokey. Well balanced and supported by a firm background of toasty French oak which also provides hints of licorice and vanilla.

680 cases were produced.

We reserved 50-cases of our 2008 Zinfandel at the winery for an additional 3-years of bottle-aging. Released in July 2014, the wine has retained its great Zinfandel flavors and time has married the wine's component tannins, acidity, aromas and oak into a silky smooth, well-balanced whole. If you like red wines with a little 'extra' aging, you'll enjoy our bottle-aged 2008 Amador Zinfandel. Great wines are grown in the vineyard. Lang Wines began producing small lots of award-winning vineyard designated Zinfandel in 1983. The Lang's continue to emphasize and bring well-deserved attention to the vineyard's unique contribution to wine quality.
