V.2014 // Zinfandel
Rattlesnake™ Zinfandel is a tribute to the crest called Rattlesnake Hill, the highest point of the Monte Rosso Vineyard and a site known for rattlesnakes living among the vines. During the day, the snakes seek the abundant sunshine and in the evening, they coil inside and around the vines.
This Zinfandel is filled with an enticing mouthwatering quality with robust flavors that includes ripe blueberries, blackberries, cherry jam and fig all tied together by a brambly undertone. Accents of white pepper, licorice and smoke weave through wine, deepening throughout the luscious finish.
V.2014 // Cabernet Sauvignon
Sentinel™ Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the shield-shaped block overseeing the entrance to Monte Rosso Vineyard, a site that produces grapes with the layers and power that are the foundation of great Cabernet.
A muscular and intense wine with deep tannins, a rich mouthfeel, sumptuous fruit and tremendous potential for aging. The forceful, concentrated flavors include ripe currants, blackberry and cherry layered with hints of anise and toasted cedar, all echoing through a long, plush finish that is framed with notes of sweet cream.
V.2014 // Red Blend
Gravity® Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on one of the lowest slopes of the Monte Rosso Vineyard.
This dark, dense wine is a blend of six varietals led by Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel that vividly expresses the power and depth of a great mountain vineyard. It is filled with intense fruit flavors that range from boysenberry and blueberry jam to blackberry and fig, woven through with lovely accents of black truffle and dusty cocoa that create a full-bodied, luscious mouthfeel.
