This wine is awesome. So jammy you want to spread it on toast. Don't try to pair it with anything, just enjoy with a good friend and a game of Yahtzee!

This is my idea of all the qualities a Zin should possess. Tons of jammy fruit with big boldness and complexity. So much to chew on and yet approachable for the non-Zin lovers. Yum.

Grape Variety: 100% ZinfandelAppellation: Paso RoblesAnalysis: Alcohol: 16.3%pH: 3.83TA: .63g/100mlRS: .80%Harvest Dates: 9/8/04 - 10/31/03 (8 ranches)Barrel Ageing:14 months in 78% neutral oak uprights, 22% in new and 1-3 year old Fr & Am oak barrelsCases Produced: 392089 points Robert Parker: "A good value, this juicy, tangy effort possesses crisp acidity, copious briery, black currant, and cherry fruit along with hints of earth, herbs, and spice presented in a classic Zinfandel style. It impressively conceals its whopping 16.5% alcohol. Drink it over the next 2-3 years." (06/06)

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 vintage of our most popular varietal is perhaps the finest to date. With the raspberry jam, licorice and pepper aromas that The Monster is famous for, this year’s offering has more depth and complexity than ever. robust berry and chocolate flavors, and a creamy, lingering finish are in perfect balance. This wine pairs well with a wide range of cuisine, from tuna to T-bone, as long as the entrée has attitude! Enjoy now, or cellar age until 2015.
