Cedarville Vineyard was founded by Jonathan Lach and Susan Marks in 2000. Cedarville Vineyard is located in the Gold Rush era town of Fair Play and is situated within the Fair Play, El Dorado, and Sierra Foothills AVAs. The winery produces many wines including a Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah.
Ruby red in color. 15.3% ABV. Unique nose of cran-apple, citrus and flowers. Medium body with medium acidity. Cherries, blood orange and iron on the palate. The finish is long and tangy. Interesting expression of Zinfandel from the the Sierra Foothills. Drink over the next 2-3 years.
My rating: 88 points.
The Zinfandel is available at the winery for $25. Cedarville Vineyard is open by appointment and is a great stop on any visit to the Sierra Foothills.
