Louis M Martini Monte Rosso Gnarly Vine Zinfandel 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley|
|Brand||Louis M Martini|
The 2014 Zinfandel Gnarly Vine Monte Rosso Vineyard is loaded with varietal character. Licorice, leather, sweet red cherry, cedar and spice are nicely delineated in an aromatically expressive, distinctive wine from the famed Monte Rosso vineyard.
Fully ripe, extracted fruit dominates in this robust, heady wine, a mixture of red berry jam and vanilla that takes on a perceptible sweetness on the palate. From the mighty mountain vineyard, it also shows dustings of dried herb and brush, an herbal undertone that balances its overall intensity.
Superripe, almost syrupy, with accents of stewed berry, grilled herb and spice. Drink now. 500 cases made.
