90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dried fruit aromas, deep flavors, full body and moderate tannins add up to a robust, berry-drenched wine that packs a big punch. Blackberries, dried figs and light spicy accents fill out the palate and linger a bit on the finish. (JG)" (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Jammy and a touch sweet, with zesty black raspberry, sage and green peppercorn notes. Drink now. (TF)" (09/2019) K&L Notes: The Amador Vintners report: "Founded in 1856, this Registered Historic Landmark is among the oldest wineries in California. Resurrected in th...

From the winery: "Leon and Shirley Sobon founded Shenandoah Vineyards in 1977. They were one of the first four wineries in Amador County's now well known Shenandoah Valley appellation.

Demand continues to grow as a result of skilled winemaking, marketing, and strong family commitments to quality and service. Today, we continue to use estate grown grapes from our sustainably-farmed vi...

Winemaker's Notes: "This vineyard above Sutter Creek in the Sierra Foothills expresses the warm summer days that cool quickly with evening mountain air to provide ripeness and structure. This vineyard is farmed by Ann Kraemer, who is pioneering a renaissance of quality in the Sierra Foothills, and she impresses us in so many ways with her integrative approach to her mountain site. Pennrose Wine is the project of Ria D'Aversa and Mike Penn, who met while studying viticulture and touring vineyards of California. Their shared passion for the wines of France...

Winery notes: Casino Mine Ranch is an estate vineyard located in the Sierra Foothills of Amador County. The winery is owned and managed by fourth-generation brothers, Jim and Rich Merryman. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in stainless steel, aged sur lie with a small percentage of new oak, to preserve freshness and add roundness to the palate. This wine could carry you through a meal from oysters on the half shell, to roasted free-range chicken with local vegetables and wrapping it up with an Amalfi lemon tart.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first duty of a Port-style wine is to be dazzlingly rich and sweet yet balanced in acidity, and this bottling is all that. Waves of blackberry jam, cassis and dark chocolate are brightened with zesty acidity, and the sweetness level is very high. " (09/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator: "This epitomizes fine Sierra Foothills Zinfandel, offering vibrant, briary raspberry, smoked pepper and wild sweet anise flavors that stretch out on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2023. *No. 45 Top 100 Wines of 2018, Smart Buy* (TF) " (11/2018) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A velvety texture and extremely concentrated black-fruit flavors make this full-bodied wine delicious to savor. It has beautiful big tannins that are well integrated, luxurious blackberry, sage and cedar flavors, plus great length on the finish. *Editor'...

Wine Enthusiast: "Mulled strawberry aromas are followed by red-cherry and strawberry flavors in this charming, vibrant wine made from Rhône varietals grown in a single vineyard. It is technically full bodied but feels balanced and trim. (JG)" (08/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's notes: "Picked on a Harvest moon at 3 am on October 4th, 2017, this was our very first year working with Amador County fruit. I am extremely grateful for this gorgeous, organically farmed, Shake Ridge Ranch fruit. The 2017 vintage was a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. The Syra...

*Natural Wine* From the producer: "Our winemaking philosophy and cellar practices have not changed since we made our first wine in 2003. Our vineyards are farmed sustainably/organic/biodynamic and in our cellar our list of ingredients has never ventured beyond minimal effective Sulphur. We have occasionally skipped the Sulphur and have always done so on our Pet Nat wines. But here we have Syrah, picked at the optimum balance and crushed to concrete, with minimal punch down by hand. We pressed off to a mix of neutral and 1-3 year old French Oak barrels. N...

Portalupi is a little Cal-Ital focused winery founded by a husband and wife in Healdsburg, California (where they run a swanky little tasting room--look for the classic Vespa scooter). As an honorary Cal-Ital varietal wine, Zinfandel fits into the Portalupi plan quite nicely. Here's the winemaker note on the new 2017 release: "Gorgeous Zinfandel from the famed Shake Ridge Ranch in Amador County. This wine toes the line of opulence and juiciness without going overboard. Juicy dark berry flavors, hints of cola and mocha, good acid and a rich mouthfeel high...

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2016 Queen of the Sierra white estate blend was grown on the Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras County at 2000’ elevation, featuring soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone. Composed of Albariño, Picpoul and Verdelho, the wine shows all of the aromatic complexity and textural presence that are the hallmarks of wines grown on the limestone of our estate."

Winemaker's Notes: "A blend of Trousseau Noir, Barbera, Tempranillo, Graciano and Cabernet Sauvignon. Soils are composed of a schist layer over dolomite-rich limestone. Hand-harvested, idigenous yeast, 2 years in neural oak. Unfined / unfiltered."

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is flavorful and well balanced, deftly blending mild oak and spice elements with warm, ripe plum and red cherry flavors on the soft, velvety texture. All the elements are harmonious and well integrated. (JG)" (04/2019)

About J. Runquist wines: "Jeff started his adventure in the wine industry in 1977 when he interned with Seagrams at their Paul Masson Sherry Cellars in Madera while studying enology at UC Davis. Upon graduating in 1980, he worked in the cellar at Montevina in Amador County’s Shenandoah Valley and was promoted to winemaker in 1982. After a three year stint at the Napa Valley Cooperative Winery from 1987 through 1990, Jeff became the winemaker for the J. Lohr winery in San Jose. It was during his tenure at J. Lohr that it became clear that he was going to ...

Winemaker's Notes: "This Trousseau sings on the nose with wild green strawberry, delicate violet, and fresh soft herbs straight from a bright summer garden. The palate circles around polished fruit: watermelon, cran-apple, red currant, black cherry, and tart raspberry with lingering dried plum. All the while notes of crunchy pickles offset silky rose petals and dusty black licorice. The 1.8 acres of organically farmed grapes that Rootdown sources in this vineyard were planted in 2004 on Honcut soil (deep, well-drained soil formed into somewhat coarsely ...

Winemaker's Notes: "As many of you know, Halcyon Wines is an exploration of Cabernet Franc expression in California. We believe that Camino Alto has offered us the most beautiful expression of Cabernet Franc that we have come across yet. A rolling hilled vineyard set at 2500' in the Sierra Foothills, the volcanic red clay soils in the Camino Alto Vineyard are a sight to see. With crazy diurnal temperatures, the grapes mature in long even fashion. Grape skins thicken by breezes created from constant weather variability adding tannin and structure to the w...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hints of black pepper, clove and cedar waft from the glass, followed by ripe and generous fruit flavors on the palate. This wine is dry, well balanced and has a mouthwatering texture stiffened a bit by light tannins. *Editors' Choice*" (09/2018)

93 points Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard is the most textured and layered of Turley's three Zinfandels from Amador County. Sweet spices, leather and dark red cherries all blossom through the mid-palate and finish in a succulent, juicy Zinfandel with tons of near and medium-term potential. (AG)" (12/2014) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(15.9% alcohol; from a vineyard planted in 1907): Captivating, complex perfume of musky raspberry, coffee, sage and wild herbs; communicates an impression of garrigue (this vineya...

93 points Vinous: "Smoke, iron, tar, incense, licorice and a host of dark aromas and flavors meld together in the glass. The 2010 Caldera is rich, layered and at times a bit wild, but the wine's balance is impeccable. A deeply spiced, resonant finish laced with cinnamon, cloves and incense rounds things out beautifully. The blend is 65% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache and 6% Counoise. (AG)" (11/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and complex, with intense baking spice, white pepper and dried berry flavors that gain richness and texture, firming nicely on th...

93 points Wine Spectator: "A distinctive wine that packs a wallop, with dense notes of metal, graphite and charcoal amid mineral and dark berry flavors, framed by chewy, gutsy tannins and ending with hints of game meat, creosote and pencil lead. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Counoise. Drink now through 2028. " (03/2015) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Black raspberry, dark cherry, bitter chocolate and a whiff of bloody steak on the nose. Pliant and full on the palate, showing much more obvious sweetness than the 2011 off...

Connoisseurs Guide: "Vanillin oak makes a big play for attention right from the start here and is a sustained, but not overly pushy adjunct to this one's principal theme of well-defined, berry-like fruit. While the wine begins on a supple note that briefly suggests that it's a Zinfandel best tagged for drinking in the short term, it tightens and firms up in a hurry and shows the tannic, Amador grip of one that, in fact, warrants a bit of time before rounding in to its best. Hasty drinking is not advised here, and its path to better will extend for anothe...

This is a big, dark, full-bodied wine with expressive aromatics of sweet red, blue and black fruits, spice, a dash of pepper, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and Turley’s signature hallmark of purity and vibrant fruit nicely balanced by acidity and sweet tannin.
