Amapola Creek "Monte Rosso Vineyard" Zinfandel 2014

50.00

Big, dense, ageworthy Zin from acclaimed winemaker Richard Arrowood, who has been making amazing wine in this part of California for 51 years. Once decanted, the nose has strong aromatics of black plum, brambleberry, black pepper, mocha, and cedar. On the lush palate, expect dense red fruit kept in check by bright acidity and grippy tannins. The finish is long and lingering with toasty spice and red licorice notes. Unabashedly California with high alcohol (15.5%) and an inky, opaque appearance in the glass. Pair this one with rib-eye or stash away in the cellar for a decade.

Sourced from a single vineyard of very low yielding vines that are over 125 years old in the Moon Mountain district of Sonoma Valley. This plot boasts a very unique soil laced with red volcanic ash. Most of the grapes were sourced from just two single blocks that are cooled by the nearby San Pablo bay. Aged for 15 months in a combination of new and seasoned French & American oak.
