"This Zinfandel, Syrah & Petite Sirah wine blend has a dark red hue and intense aromatics dominated by notes of black cherry, cassis and allspice. The palate offers excellent depth and broad mouthfeel alongside rich flavors that echo the nose. Firm tannins and subtle minerality frame a fruit-focused mid-palate, while rich flavor characterizes the lengthy finish. Lingering minerality and spice. Balanced and integrated, the wine is an archetypal California mountain wine blend." —winemaker
"An intriguing blend of 37% Zinfandel, 32% Syrah and 31% Petite Sirah aged in a combination of French and American oak (75% new) for 20 months, the 2012 Proprietary Red Mountain Red Monte Rosso Vineyard is superb. Abundant aromas and flavors of licorice, incense, camphor, black cherries and blackcurrants are found in this full-bodied red. Its luxurious richness conceals most of the tannic structure. This big, mountain-styled 2012 exhibits tremendous upside. Give it several more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15+ years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
