1980 Amador County Zinfandel
5/9/12-The Wednesday knitters met at the home of Tim & Jane Curtis to enjoy turkey sliders, knitters salad and chips. The brown bag mystery wine was a 1980 Amador County Zinfandel produced by Santino Wines (Scott Harvey winemaker). The wine was labeled C.P. Huntington, commemorative of the 1862 locomotive now housed in the California Railroad Museum. C.P. Huntington was one of the “big four” (M. Hopkins, C. Crocker & L. Stanford). The wine was a very light style zin that was still quite healthy and enjoyable.
