Intense character and bold flavors. History, beauty, and heritage come together in our 2011 Monte Rosso Zinfandel. Over 130 years old, this renowned vineyard lives up to its reputation, delivering wines with intense character and rich flavors. Flavors of red fruit bramble, brown sugar and dark cherries are accented with hints of fresh cracked pepper and sweet black licorice notes. The cooler vintage exposed a more elegant and refined side of the ancient Zinfandel, supplanting its characteristically burly and brusque profile with a more feminine gentility. With higher acids in the wine, this vintage will cellar and bottle age well for many years.
