2014 Monte Rosso Vineyard Reserve Zinfandel
Zinfandel •Monte Rosso Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Mt. Veeder
Today’s featured wine is the Rock Wall Wine 2014 Monte Rosso Reserve Zinfandel. California Zinfandel aficionados have long revered wines from the legendary Monte Rosso Vineyard in the Sonoma Valley AVA, on the southwest side of the Mayacamas mountain range.
Made famous by Louis Martini, this prestigious vineyard is sought after by many, but only accessible to a few lucky wineries. The Rock Wall Block has 116-year-old vines that are head trained and super gnarly, so the resulting wine is bold, full-bodied and juicy.
Really lush and full on the nose, with bramble bush, blackberry, raspberry, cherry cordial, warm spice, oak, cherry pipe tobacco, sweetwood and cracked pepper.
On the palate, enjoy blackberry and black cherry juice up front. Then, brambly mixed berry, tobacco, twigs, toasty oak and black pepper.

Rosewood hues when viewed from the top. From the side, dark burgundy. Chubby legs cling to the glass before leaving wine-stained streaks behind.
Bramble bush, blackberry, raspberry, cherry cordial, warm spice, oak, cherry pipe tobacco, sweetwood and cracked pepper.
Blackberry and black cherry juice up front. Then, brambly mixed berry, tobacco, twigs, toasty oak and black pepper.
Ultra long, with black fruits giving way to bramble, tobacco and black pepper at the very end.
Braised beef, grilled beef fajitas or a juicy New York steak would be fantastic with this rich and juicy Monte Rosso Zinfandel.
