External Reviews for Charter Oak Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Monte Rosso Vineyard
From the elite Monte Rosso Vineyard, which produces some of the most sought after Zinfandel grapes in the state. Charter Oak is brimming with briary red and black berries, dark cherries and a perfume of ripe strawberry. But this is by no means a "fruity" wine. Charter Oak has deftly balanced intensity of fruit with the structure of a high-end Cabernet. Bright pinkish rim with a dark core; the wine is somewhat restrained in its youthful state. The texture of the wine shows perfect balance - no heat, just fresh berries that build and build on the lush palate. Beautiful to drink now but I would love to taste it again in a year or two.
From the world-famous Monte Rosso Vineyard, widely regarded as the best spot for growing Zinfandel in all of California. Beautiful and elegant, not your average California fruit bomb - restrained enough even to be paired with tuna or salmon! Only 325 cases of this wine were made, from grapes harvested off 100+ year old vines and aged exclusively in French oak barrels. Deep blackberry, currant, anise and toasted espresso notes are prominent, with great structure and balance. Fans of high end Cabernets, Bordeaux and Brunellos should definitely check this one out. Well worth the price!
Notes on the Charter Oak Napa Valley Zinfandel 2006 : NVWE NOTES: This outstanding Napa Zin has sweetly rich aromas of plums, blackberries, black cherries, vanilla, black pepper and forest floor spice. It shows great richness and focus on the palate, with opulent, brightly fruity flavors that coat the tongue. The finish is packed with plum, blueberry, black pepper and vanilla, which form a supple and mouth-coating melange of great length. A grand sipper, it is dry and dinner-balance despite its enormous richness. 400 cases produced.CHARTER OAK NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL 2006
