The Zinfandel, Syrah & Petitre Sirah wine blend has a dark red hue and intense aromatics dominated by notes of black cherry, cassis and allspice. The palate offers excellent depth and broad mouthfeel alongside rich flavors that echo the nose. Firm tannins and subtle minerality frame a fruit-focused mid-palate, while rich flavor characterizes the lengthy finish. Lingering minerality and spice. Balance and integrated, the wine is an archetypal California mountain wine blend.

Wine AdvocateAn intriguing blend of 37% Zinfandel, 32% Syrah and 31% Petite Sirah aged in a combination of French and American oak (75% new) for 20 months, the 2012 Proprietary Red Mountain Red Monte Rosso Vineyard is superb. Abundant aromas and flavors of licorice, incense, camphor, black cherries and blackcurrants are found in this full-bodied red. Its luxurious richness conceals most of the tannic structure. This big, mountain-styled 2012 exhibits tremendous upside. Give it several more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15+ years

Wine EnthusiastA mix of 37% Zinfandel, 32% Syrah and 31% Petite Sirah, this is a burly, thick and syrupy concoction from a high-elevation vineyard site known for its power and concentration. Sweet vanilla rides a dense wave of tannin and oak, finishing tight and leathery.
