Chateau Montelena Estate Zinfandel 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Calistoga|
Nose: The rich, ripe character of the vintage comes across immediately on the nose with blackberry jam and cocoa along with cinnamon, clove and sandalwood. Palate: The brambly, smoky character of the old vine Zinfandel is on display here as notes of tobacco, flint, and bacon fat co-mingle with fresh figs, black walnut, and plum sauce. The finish comes gracefully amidst dusty tannins, dark chocolate, black pepper and crème de menthe.
