Montevina Zinfandel 2006
As Zinfandel should be, Montevina 2006 Sierra Foothills Zin is all about berry fruit and spice. Red currants and raspberries swirl with gentle hints of pepper and baking spices. Soft tannins fade away on a drizzle of raspberry sauce. Pair Montevina 2006 Sierra Foothill Zin with BBQ, pizza, or Tuesday night. Don’t be afraid to kick it up a notch and serve with spicier Southwestern, Latin, or Pacific Rim dishes.
Winemaking is art, science, passion and a healthy dose of voodoo. At Montevina, we got our start in 1970 in the Sierra foothills and released our first wines in 1973. We quickly became well-known for our robust, full-flavored red wines, especially Zinfandel and Barbera, and proceeded to inspire a well-deserved revival of this region’s historic wine industry

Wine Tasting NotesOur Amador Zinfandel is the classic style of zinfandel. Packed with bolder, more intense layers of lush fruit and rich, deep spice this is a civilized zinfandel but still country enough to not be not afraid to get its boots dirty. Filled with aromas of ripe blackberry, licorice and cinnamon you'll recogonize this as a favorite zinfandel that invites you back for another glass. Sturdy tannins and firm acidity give it depth and structure, now with the promise of more complexity with age.
