I recently met in the Valley with Scott Harvey. He has an incredible reputation as one of the best producers of Zinfandel. Trained in Germany and America, he specializes in crafting big, delicious and silky Zinfandels. He has been in Amador County since his early 20s and ran many top properties there. He then created the Folie a Deux brand including Menage a Trois and sold it a decade ago to Sutter Home Winery. He is now focusing his love and energy on his original roots in Amador, which is considered the most famous County in the Sierra Foothills. What I love about this Zinfandel is that while it is big and bold it is also silky, rich and smooth, which is tricky to get exactly right in crafting Zinfandel. This Reserve has a dynamic taste profile and will be hard to put down now but it will also take on even more elegance and has true aging potential. You know it's an extremely well made Zinfandel as soon as you put your nose to the glass. This wine from the Bowman Vineyard is 100% Zinfandel, which was planted 40 years ago. Well balanced, bold and yet elegant, and focused with approachable tannins. Layers of mixed berries, with dark raspberry jam, blueberries, dark cherries, vanilla oak, cinnamon, pie crust, pepper and spice with that nice Amador forest floor. A long, pleasant finish. Enjoy now and for many years to come. 993 cases were produced.

Winemaker History
 
Scott Harvey
Growing up in California’s Sierra Mountains Region, Scott developed a keen interest in winemaking as a high school exchange student in the Rhineland Pfalz region of Germany. Scott attended California State University at Sacramento before beginning practical Enology training at Montevina Winery in Amador County. Back to Germany in 1975, he apprenticed at K. Fitz-Ritter Winery while attending the Weinbau Schule in Neustadt. Once again returning to Montevina Winery, Scott focused on all aspects of winemaking and running a winery. From farming the grapes to effectively marketing the wine, Scott solidified his knowledge and experience. In 1978, at the age of twenty-three, Scott took over as Head Winemaker for Story Winery, also in Amador County. In 1979 Scott developed an ambitious winery plan for the Santino family. As Winemaker and General Manager of Santino Winery, Scott is credited with placing Amador County firmly on the California wine map. Crafting the best wines possible from the soils and climatic conditions of the region, Santino and later Renwood benefited from Scott’s German training and innovative style. Becoming one of the leading wineries in Amador County, and garnering critical acclaim, the wine world was paying attention. Amador County was now recognized as a world-class wine-growing appellation. In 1996, Scott was recruited as Partner, Winemaker & President for newly purchased, Folie a Deux Winery in Napa Valley. Combining forces with Lead Partner, renowned Winemaker, Richard Peterson, Ph.D, a formidable winemaking team was launched. Scott pursued his commitment to award-winning Cabernets made from the Estate Vineyards in Napa Valley while continuing his passion for Amador County Zinfandel. Access to Scott’s original Grandpère vineyard in Amador County and close relationships with premier Amador County growers, resulted in award-winning wines all around for Folie a Deux. In addition, Scott’s creation, the “Menage a Trois” line of wines, was an instant commercial success. In 2004, Folie a Deux, now a respected brand, was sold to Sutter Home/Trinchero Winery. Scott was finally positioned and ready to start his own venture, and he had the ideal partner - his wife, Jana, a wine industry veteran. Scott Harvey Wines, the initial line of wines in the “Creative Wine Concepts” portfolio, was created out of market demand for Scott’s wines - “niche wines that over deliver.” The Scott Harvey line focuses on Scott’s roots - Zinfandel, Syrah and Barbera from the Sierras. Approachable, food friendly and full of luscious fruit, these wines have struck a cord in the marketplace. Scott has hit his stride with his new mantra.
