After the smashing success of the Barbera offering this spring, Scott Harvey is back with not one but two excellent wines including another perfect 10!
I, for one, am always happy to take advantage of his 45 years of experience making excellent wine in Amador County especially when we get to do it under $20.
Today we've got a 4-pack with two bottles of the 2017 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Zinfandel (given 92 points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine) plus two bottles of the 2018 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Syrah (which we gave a perfect 10 taste rating).
Both wines retail for $28 and are typically only available through the winery.
Through our 1 Day Insider Deal you get these four bottles for just $69.99, or $17.50 a bottle. That's a savings of 37% (over $10 per bottle) and a total savings of over $50 after factoring in our super low $5 shipping.

First up we've got the 2018 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Syrah from Amador County. Just 491 cases were produced.
This wine is 67% Chapman Vineyard Syrah plus 24% York Vineyard Syrah and 9% Amador Zinfandel. It was aged 21 months in French oak and has less than 2 g/L of residual sugar.
From the winery:
Produced in a drinkable, fruit forward and rich style. Aged 21 months in French oak cooperage to develop a well-rounded wine with firmly structured tannins for delicious drink-ability. Varietal mouth filling fleshy texture with big red berry and cherry fruit. Aromas of blackberry, cedar, blueberry and sweet oak introduce fresh, bright and spicy flavors of the same, laced with firm tannins that carry through the long finish. 2015 was the first vintage we produced from start to finish at our winery in Amador County. This allowed us much better oversight of the entire winemaking process and you can taste the difference.
The 2018 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Syrah begins with a very pleasing and expressive aroma of black cherry and other dark fruit plus vanilla and cola along with a little licorice, mint and other spice notes.
Taking a sip reveals just a lovely Syrah with juicy, concentrated dark fruit, tons of excellent vanilla notes, well-integrated and tasty spice, licorice and more. Yummy, yum! This wine has plenty of complexity yet is still easy drinking and delicious. It gets even better after it has some air with the lovely fruit flavors becoming almost candied in this very dry wine.
It ends dry and very, very long with lots of lingering spice and vanilla. I love it. It's amazingly good for how young it is and definitely has quite a future ahead of it.

Next we've got the 2017 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Zinfandel also from Amador County. 1,512 cases were produced.
This wine is 81% Zinfandel from the Bowman Vineyard and 19% Syrah from the York and Chapman Vineyards. It spends 19 months in French oak and has just 2 g/L of residual sugar.
From the winery:
Fruit forward, rich full flavors expressing both the varietal and the Amador Terroir. This complex wine has notes of bright raspberry, white pepper and a full pleasant mouthfeel.
Amador County is extremely well suited to Zinfandel. Zinfandel has been grown in the Amador County Gold Rush area for over 150 years.
2017 was the first full vintage no longer being affected by the previous drought. Good winter rains produced flavorful and healthy crops. The late harvest allowed the grapes to ripen long into the fall developing full complex flavored wines.
The 2017 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Zinfandel begins with a enticing aroma of cherry, raspberry, vanilla, licorice and a little bit of a dried herbal note. It's quite attractive and gains even more complexity as it has time in the glass. (This wine definitely benefits from some air, it's a bit closed at first, but blossoms quite nicely after a couple hours.)
Tasting reveals candied cherry, licorice and a little vanilla. It's a beautifully balanced Zin, not the big and over the top style although that's not to say it doesn't have plenty of flavor! This is really delicious.
It ends dry and slightly grippy with tons of lasting fruit and spice and even a bit of lingering earthiness. Fantastic! It'd be hard to go wrong with either of these excellent wines.
