"The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard gives up notes of baked plums & blueberry compote with touches of black raspberries, fallen leaves & spice box plus touches of unsmoked cigars & garrigue. Full-bodied & packing tons of spicy red berry preserves & earthy layers, it has a firm frame of chewy tannins & great freshness, finishing long".

"Precise and sleek, with lively cherry, savory anise and pepper flavors that speed toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases made. — TF"
"The nose on this wine opens with aromas of fruit preserves, dark raspberry compote and a hint of blackberry fruit and leather. Stay with the glass, and these characters will quickly develop into fresh fruit, red cherries and black brambleberries laying over a hint of orange peel and toasted anise seeds.
Take a sip, and you will immediately find a bright, fresh acidity, dripping with the berries promised on the nose. Wait a moment, and you will notice rich tannins balancing the acidity, underscoring dark black cherries and a sparse note of crème brulee. The finish is long and smooth, reprising the fruit from the nose, and adding a touch of allspice at the very end.
You can enjoy this wine now in its fruitful youth or cellar as its tannin structure bodes well for aging for many years to come." - Winery
