OVERVIEW

The Sierra Foothills were first famous for gold, but the appellation is now considered a highlight of California wine country. The Gold Rush, beginning in 1849, brought thousands of diggers and dreamers to the area. Vines, mostly Zinfandel, were planted to produce wine for the thirsty miners, and in time more than 100 wineries existed in this cool, craggy region. But the waning of the Gold Rush, and Prohibition, signaled a halt to the production of Sierra Foothills wine for many years.

Tempranillo is the great red grape of Spain, producing a variety of wine styles in regions around the country. Tempranillo wine typically features medium acidity, medium tannins and dark red color. Young, unoaked versions will be pleasantly fruity, with flavors of red fruits and jam. More complex versions, aged in oak – often American oak – will have vanilla, toast and meaty notes.
