Carol Shelton Zinfandel Monga Zin Old Vine Lopez Vineyard Cucamonga Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Very bright pomegranate cherry fruit, brown sugary-caramel oak. Fragrant Asian spices-Chinese 5-spice in milk chocolate/cocoa; Mouthfeel is still a bit young and chewy, but quite drinkable now. Very mouthfilling!

Big jammy vanilla and licorice scented nose with lots of juniper accented wild berry fruit aromas. Fresh and zesty in the mouth. This is very well balanced with lots of fruit tannin supporting deep briary flavors. The clarity of fruit on the palate is surprising given the jammy aromas. This picks up lovely brushy chaparral inner mouth perfumes that lead to gorgeous red fruit with a little lingonberry character on the finish, which does show a touch of heat. A little tannic and chewy but nicely done. 91pts

Monga Zin comes from the Lopez Vineyard, planted in 1918. These old vines are sustainably dry-farmed, resulting in low yields and a concentrated, spicy Zinfandel -- truly 'humongous!' Carol Shelton, a 'Zin Specialist' known for her luscious, fruit-forward wines, produces small lots of vineyard-designated wines that reflect the essence of exceptional vineyards throughout California.
