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. From the first offering of 1,200 cases, the winery has continued to thrive, adjusting the portfolio of wines over the years. It is now producing about 25,000 cases per year. 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. This wine found the light, bright side to Grenache with a soft palate of strawberries and juiciness. 13.4% alc. Pennrose Wine is the project of Ria D'Aversa and Mike Penn, who...

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 ...

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'...

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: "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."

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...

90-93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard is another big, intense wine, but it has more than enough old-vine depth to fill out the wine's frame. Like most of the wines in this range, the Judge Bell comes across as raw and intense, yet it also offers considerable depth and tons of pedigree. (AG)" (12/2016)


*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...

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 2016 Zinfandel Esola Vineyard emerges from a site in Amador County planted in 1968. The Esola offers notable power and intensity in its red cherry and blood orange profile. A hint of reduction from aging in large format oak needs time to blow off. I would give the 2016 a few years in bottle to allow some of the edges to soften. There is more than enough structure to support many years of fine drinking. This is a superb wine from Bedrock. (AG)" (04/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Zinfandel Esola Vineyard comes from the heart of Amador. This is a big, briary, beefy, muscular wine with a full body, plenty of heady red and black fruits, tar, earth and pepper. It is a beauty and the fruit is where it’s at - as it is pure and rich, following through for at least 45+ seconds on the palate. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Everybody should recognize the incredible speed at which Morgan Twain-Peterson has built his Bedrock Wine Co. into a world-class performer. Moreover, few people hav...



Buccella is husband-and-wife team William and Alicia Deem, who bonded over a bottle of Gaja on their first date back in 1990. That bottle not only sparked their love affair, but was the inspiration as they pursued their dream of making wine.

Situated near the Mokelumne River in Lodi, this vineyard was a true find for the intrepid winemakers of Bedrock, who have made a mission of crafting beautiful wines from old-vine heritage sites in California. They discovered it via a "for sale" sign across the street from their friend's property, and quickly learned that it was slated to be ripped out to make way for walnut trees. Feeling rankled by this potential loss of California vinous history, they bought it and transformed the straggly vines with compost, dolomitic lime soil, new irrigation and pru...

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...

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...

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...
