Montevina White Zinfandel 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Aromatic with tobacco, briar, earth, dried leather and dried fruit notes, touch of white pepper and chocolate too. Bright acids right up front drive this into the tongue and across the palate with dusty red fruit and slightly drying astringent tannins. There is a nice streak of vanilla up front leading to wild cherry and earth tones with a touch of tree bark across the mid-palate and a long, juicy, bay and vanilla finish. Admirably fresh and red fruited though this does fade with air. 87pts

Montevina Winery:
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

Worst white zin I've ever had, so I asked my waiter at Morton's Steakhouse what it was. (Beringer is five times better.) Felt compelled to write this review.

Cherries and plums on the nose, although it didn't offer too much there. Rich, thick and voluptuous, with big, fat, intense fruit flavors (plums, cherry and dates). Its still alcoholic at 15%, but the edge is gone. There's a nice white pepper undertone, and the finish offers licorice, balanced by a touch of iron.

A hot alcoholic, yet intensely plummy nose. Its over 15% alcohol, so be warned. Literally dripping with ripe fruit - very rich and jammy throughout - lots of bright cherries, plums and blue berries. Hot again on the finish, but other than that really enjoyable.

Spicey, jams, cherry, and sweet black fruit components, deep concentrations of jams, plums, currants and clack berries.

Bright red cherries on the nose. Lovely pale hay-colored slightly aged color. Flavors of plum (late harvest?), candy and cinnamon with a syrupy dry slightly medicinal finish. Not too shabby.

NOTESMontevina's 2007 White Zinfandel boasts cheery carnation hue. Aromas of kiwi, watermelon, and strawberry prance out of the glass and couple upwith juicy grape flavors to jitterbug on your tongue. A brisk acidity addsa touch of sass to the act. A touch of sweetness makes this a delightfully quaffable rose. Whether dining on spicy Asian inspired dishes, sitting poolside, or out for a night on the town, Montevina 2007 White Zinfandel is the perfect pink to drink.
