  Amador County Zinfandel
This is truly a Sierra Foothills wine. Rich and full of body with plum and over-ripe characteristics.
  Sierra Foothills Barbera
This is truly a robust wine. From a vineyard that has very little water, the result is a very bold wine with a very smooth finish.
  Sierra Foothills Reserve Syrah
This very delicate, velvety, syrah has a touch of vanilla on the finish from aging on new French oak.
  Sierra Foothills Sangiovese
This super-tuscan style of Sangiovese is a rich, earthy wine with a lot of fruit.
