2016 Hill of Thunder Red Wine
On a sequestered and beautiful Amador County ranch, the Shake Ridge Vineyard is the result of decades of experience, serious passion and good old-fashioned hard work. Once a prominent viticulturist for some of Napa's most renowned vineyards, Ann Kraemer turned to the mountains when it was time to plant her own. The 46-acre vineyard straddles a ridge way up above 1,700 feet and is home to some of the finest grapes we've ever seen.
Our inaugural vintage of the Hill of Thunder Red Wine blends 46% Zinfandel, 42% Petite Sirah and 12% Primitivo into a dark and bold masterpiece. Heavenly aromas of violets, dried berries, figs and cherry liqueur move to intense flavors of dark berries and chocolate-covered plums. Gripping tannins paired with a round mouthfeel leave you amazed with a perfect, lingering finish. This wine is simply divine.
