Grown in Amador County, the Helwig 2012 is an excellent example of a complex red Zinfandel that emanates from the Sierra Foothills. Dark and rich on the palate, it features soft chewy tannins that fill the mouth with flavors of raspberry jam, Christmas cake spice, light smoke and vanilla. It is deep crimson in color and is quite approachable despite its complexity. The Helwig 2012 Zinfandel is ready to drink now but will continue to age beautifully for the next five to seven years.
This Zinfandel was meant to accompany most grilled meats and a variety of hearty Italian dishes. If you are searching for a wine to stand up to any barbeque sauce, check this one out. You will agree that it’s the real deal.
