Another knock-out offering is the 2012 Zinfandel Montafi Ranch, a blend of 89% Zinfandel and 11% mixed blacks (Alicante Bouchet, Grand Noir, Peloursin, Aubun, Trousseau and a handful of others). Very rich with a seamless, full-bodied style, this wine is loaded with black and red fruits, spice and subtle oak in addition to well-integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol. (RP)
Inky purple. Sexy, deeply pitched dark fruit liqueur, floral pastille and pit fruit aromas show superb clarity and power, with a spicy element adding lift. Smooth and voluptuous in character, offering intense blueberry and boysenberry flavors that coat the palate while maintaining a sense of vibrancy. Finishes sweet and long, with velvety tannins providing gentle grip and shape. Borders on decadent, in a good way. (ST)
The 2012 Zinfandel Montafi Ranch is powerful and imposing. Layers of expressive dark fruit open up in an explosive Zinfandel full of personality. Today, the Montafi comes across as massive in style, with not a lot of subtlety. It will be interesting to see how things develop over the next year. The blend is 89% Zinfandel and 11% mixed blacks. This is one of the warmer sites Carlisle works with. (AG)
Voluptuous and ripe but also layered and complex. Aromas of black raspberry, bay leaf and orange peel open to rich flavors of blackberry, mint and orange rind. (TF)
