Louis M. Martini Zinfandel Gnarly Vine Monte Rosso Vineyard 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pomegranate, tart on the nose with fine subtle latex and salami notes, lime leaf and chocolate and American oaky. Smooth and supple with focus on entry with a rich and supple character. The tannins are dense and slIghtly chewy with fine blue tiger black berry fruit. Very well balanced and juicy, and fairly fruit driven with a nice base of wood and vanilla cream under the strawberry and blackberry fruit. Still grapy and slightly exotic grapiness at that, before this turns a bit dark and stony on the finale. 91pts

Louis M. Martini Winery:
We believe that Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble of grapes. We believe that great winemaking begins with great vineyards, and we want the land to speak through our wines. Our wines express the best characteristics of Cabernet, the personality of the special places where our grapes are grown, and the vision and skill of the winemaker in blending balanced, engaging, and memorable wines.
