About

95

"From the famous Monte Rosso red soil vineyard, two Zinfandels were produced. The 2013 Zinfandel Monte Rosso (680 cases coming in at 16% alcohol) is 100% Zinfandel. At $45.00, this is a great buy! Made from 123-year-old head-pruned vines, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black cherry, blackcurrant & blackberry with some dusty, loamy soil undertones & pepper as well as hints of charcuterie & spice. It is full-bodied, lavishly rich, & stunningly pure. It should make a savory mouthful for at least a decade."

Product Description:

"The nose on this wine opens quickly with big layers of black plum and brambleberry. Swirl the glass, and you will find the nose developing notes of mocha and cedar under the fruit, with just a hint of crushed black pepper.

Take a sip and you will find bright red fruit underscored with light caramelized sugar. The acidity is crisp and lends to the intensity of the fruit, which quickly opens up into characters of summer blackberry and juicy plums. The tannins are rich and full, and carry the palate through to a finish brimming with toasty vanilla and red licorice." - Winery
