Dalton Vineyard River of Skulls Mourvedre 2011

Wow! This is bold and juicy! I tend to only drink Mourvèdre when it’s a blend, but very much enjoyed this standalone Mourvèdre! Lots of spices. (Lush) — 15 days ago

A less know AVA for wine but, that doesn’t mean they don’t offer up meaningful wines. Amador deserves more wine lovers attention.

Favia

Quarzo Amador Syrah 2016

The 2016 ‘Quarzo’ Syrah is drop dead stunning. Sourced from Ann Kraemer's Shake Ridge Ranch this instantly grabs your attention with its dark inky color and vibrant aromatics of ripe black cherries, fresh violets, smoked bacon, black olives and hints of earthy minerals all exploding from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, fresh and layered with a center of juicy dark fruits, black olives and violets that burst on to the long supple finish. This is a total gem of a Syrah from Andy Erickson and Annie Favia that is simply delicious now, but will certainly continue to evolve incredibly well over the next decade. — 11 days ago
