Vines so old and gnarled they scoffed at Prohibition. This Moon Mountain Zinfandel boasts the historic vineyard’s signature dusty earth overtones on top of vibrant, juicy raspberry pie flavors. A little cinnamon and Sichuan pepper brings the spice in a full-bodied, richly textured delight. Get a taste of history and you’re bound to keep coming back.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Gnarly Vine Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is opulently scented of baked raspberries, prunes and fruitcake with wafts of Chinese five spice, potpourri and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, a racy line of freshness lifts the bold, flamboyant spicy fruit preserves, finishing long and chewy.
Ripe, exotic aromas of crushed berries and orange peel. Full body. Dense center palate with a flavorful finish. A big, rich wine, yet fresh and intense at the finish. Old vines – some as old as 1888.
