One of the few outstanding Zinfandels of the vintage is Biale's 2005 Zinfandel Monte Rosso, which demonstrates the terrific terroir of this superb site in Sonoma. Deep ruby to the rim with pure notes of black raspberries, cherries, garrigue, and pepper, it is a complex, medium-bodied, rich, spicy, flavorful Zin to enjoy over the next 2-3 years.

A ripe, racy, full-throttle style, with intense rich blackberry, cranberry, sage, cedar and spice, showing some heat on the finish. Drink now through 2008.

A profound effort (one of the finest Zins of the vintage) is the 2002 Zinfandel Monte Rosso. This hallowed, old vineyard (previously owned by Louis Martini, and now by Gallo) has produced a Zinfandel with an incredible 16.6% alcohol. However, the wine is so well balanced that no heat is noticeable. Relatively elegant, with medium to full body, loads of black currant, raspberry, and cherry fruit interwoven with crushed rock and floral notes, this well-delineated, super-concentrated, fresh, vibrant, racy Zinfandel possesses a Pinot Noir-like delicacy. Consume it over the next decade.
