Zinfandel, Moon Mountain Vineyard 


This Zinfandel from Moon Mountain Vineyard was crafted from vines originally planted in 1968 by Monte Rosso’s legendary vineyard manager, Joe Miami. Head-trained and dry-farmed, the vines provide fruit that expresses the purity of this site. Balance and restraint are the primary themes with this wine. Bold yet nuanced, its flavor profile is defined by a complexity that separates it from its California peers.With 3 – 5 years of cellaring it will be perfect for those who long for a more elegant style of Zinfandel.
