Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Zinfandel Gnarly Vine Monte Rosso Vineyard, a blend of 95% Zinfandel and 5% Petite Sirah, was aged 16 months in 75% French and 25% American oak (65% new). A powerful, big, rich, spicy, peppery, meaty Zinfandel (none of its whopping 16.3% alcohol shows through), it possesses loads of fruit as well as super-concentration. A great terroir along with impeccable winemaking has resulted in a terrific Zinfandel to drink over the next 5-8 years.

Wine SpectatorAppealingly briary and ripe, displaying dark raspberry, red clay and smoky pepper aromas that lead to dense, layered flavors of cherry, sage and bitter chocolate. Drink now through 2022. 995 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Powerfully brambly this gigantic wine hails from a monumental vineyard that consistently delivers fine-tuned tension between structure and intensity. Sizable tannins surround a soft mouthfeel of plum, leather and black pepper, the concentration suggesting aging through 2020.
