The only Bedrock Zinfandel offering from Amador County, Esola Zinfandel comes from vines in the center of the famous Shenandoah Valley. Owner Denise Esola farms these 1968-planted vines and the granitic soils they grow in with enormous TLC, and every year the wine is one of the most agile and graceful renditions of the variety we produce. The 2018 is no exception, possessing the explosive aromatics that make the site so singular (every year this smells like tarragon and grapefruit out of tank) along with red fruits and the edge of structure brought by the granitic subsoils. The 2018 is a bit looser knit than previous renditions and will reward earlier drinking than some examples of this bottling. It’s a piquant delight!
