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 – Description from hburns

  • Montevina Merlot 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smokey and pleasantly weedy on the nose under rather rich cocoa dusted raspberry fruit. Medium light bodied in the mouth and simple with easy going plummy fruit and some subtle cocoa and herb notes adding a little complexity along with a late arriving vanilla tone. Theres plenty of acid here and a little tannin to add some weight in the mouth bu... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • CB, I am resurrecting your conversation with the hope that you're still around.  I am familiar with most of the Amador Zinfandel labels you mentioned.  I would not be surprised if you could find some, if not all, of those in K.C.  I am going to make some more label suggestions so that, if you see any of these, you will have some knowledge.  All ...

  •  Wow, we had a great time last night. Hopefully Foxall will have a chance to put his spin on things. I didn't take any notes, just 2 pictures but I lined up some of the dead soldiers this morning. 15 people, over 30 different wines and not a single dud except for a sweet/syrupy/candied 2001 Rosenblum Monte Rosso Zinfandel. But enough for the bad... Read More

  • Montevina Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

    Wine review by amynraleigh


  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...

  • Well, I am headed back up to Amador County (plymouth, ca)  for wine tasting after several years.  It is not my first choice in wine regions, but a friend wants to visit.   I see, that in my absence, that several new wineries have popped up there.... and it is not still all Zin and Viogner.  I was doing some research, and it appears there are mor...

  • Montevina White Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More
