Montevina Zinfandel 2014

Member Review by Zuiko:

This wine has spice, plum and cinnamon but in moderate proportions. This is not a big style zin. It is enjoyable but not as rich as the 2008. My rating -- 85

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

This is for the 2008 vintage, which now appears to be getting a little old and loose as of 2012.. I would recommend going 2009 or later. Nevertheless, a pretty spicy, zippy zin. it's not shy in that department.

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.
