Louis Martini Monte Rosso Vineyard Gnarly Vine Zinfandel 2017 (6 Bottle Case)

Louis Martini Monte Rosso Vineyard Gnarly Vine Zinfandel 2017 (6 Bottle Case)

93 Points - James Suckling. Named for its iron rich, red volcanic soils, Monte Rosso has produced grapes of unmistakable character for more than a century. Three generations of the Martini family have made wine from this iconic vineyard and it continues to inspire their winemaking team on a deeply profound level. Monte Rosso remains the source of some of the most coveted bottles in the Louis M. Martini portfolio. Full bodied and concentrated the textured mouthfeel is plush, finishing long. Vibrant, juicy red raspberry pie unfurls on the palate, accented by the historic vineyard’s signature dusty earth overtones.

Wine Press Ratings

93 Points - James Suckling

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Gnarly Vine Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is opulently scented of baked raspberries, prunes and fruitcake with wafts of Chinese five spice, potpourri and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, a racy line of freshness lifts the bold, flamboyant spicy fruit preserves, finishing long and chewy. Ripe, exotic aromas of crushed berries and orange peel. Full body. Dense center palate with a flavorful finish. A big, rich wine, yet fresh and intense at the finish. Old vines – some as old as 1888."

Tasting Notes

The fruit aromas are set against a spicy backdrop of cinnamon stick and Sichuan pepper. Full bodied and concentrated the textured mouthfeel is plush, finishing long. Vibrant, juicy red raspberry pie unfurls on the palate, accented by the historic vineyard’s signature dusty earth overtones.

About the Producer

Louis M. Martini’s decision to settle in Napa Valley was driven by a desire to craft exceptional wines by sourcing the best fruit possible. In the years that followed Prohibition, he established a legacy of craftsmanship and a passion for Napa Valley that continues to this day. Their history reflects the vision, ingenuity and endurance of a family committed to making the best Cabernet Sauvignon possible.
