Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard

The Rosenblum Cellars® Monte Rosso Vineyard Reserve Zinfandel is a powerhouse wine showcasing the big, brawny character of its mountain origins. Dark-fruit and cracked-white-pepper aromas open the nose, followed by a dense, juicy palate that combines black forest fruit with briary wood tannins. The volcanic soils lend distinct spice notes to the immensely satisfying palate, which is followed by a long and silky finish. Pair this deep, layered Sonoma wine with hearty dishes.

Located on the south side of Mt. Veeder, perched 1,200 feet over the Sonoma Valley, the Monte Rosso Vineyard is one of the most historic and well-known vineyards in the region. Above the fog line, under radiant sunny skies, this mountainside property boasts large diurnal shifts between day and night. The century-old vines are head-pruned and dry farmed, rooting deeply into the volcanic red soil and extracting a rich mineral quality that gives the wine a distinct loamy earthiness alongside its intense, concentrated fruit.We harvested our grapes from three different blocks within the Monte Rosso Vineyard; which, according to the direction they face, ripen at varying times. To capture the expressive character of each block, we fermented the fruit separately in small, open-top bins, using the native Monte Rosso yeast isolate and Rockpile yeast isolate. For this vintage, we allowed a longer fermentation time of approximately 18 days, which focused the big, red fruit flavors. We then aged the wine for 14 months in a combination of American, French and European oak for depth of spice and added texture.

We've blind tasted this 2009 vintage against many others. One of our best Zins ever.
