This Montevina Winery [Link] wine came to us in a gift exchange at Peggy and Georges, 2005, Drank 12/24/2005. Very Good, spicy, held up very well with the other wines of the same or a better price point that we tasted and drank on Christmas Eve 2005. [My Rating [Link], 8.5] I like this a lot and would buy again, even if I had to pay for it.
Mystery wine reviewers notes:
This classic foothill zinfandel showcases jammy berry fruit aromas accented by red spice scents and hints of truffles and oak vanillin. Its rich, focused, brambly flavors are supported by firm but supple tannins and persist into a long, fruit-filled finish. This Zinfandel beautifully complements grilled and barbecued meats, rack of lamb, and pasta in red sauce.
