Rattlesnake™ Zinfandel is a tribute to the crest called Rattlesnake Hill, the highest point of the Monte Rosso Vineyard. It’s famous for the rattlesnakes living among the vines, seeking the abundant sunshine by day and coiling around and inside the vines at nightfall.
Grapes for the 2016 Rattlesnake Zinfandel were primarily selected from Monte Rosso Vineyard (86%) including the Rattlesnake block. Full-bodied with a spicy frame, this Zinfandel boasts rich aromatics and explosive dark fruit notes. Ripe black raspberry, blueberry, cedar and earth are balanced and seamlessly interwoven throughout the mid-palate. 94pts by Robert Parker
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.
Fruit for the 2016 Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from Monte Rosso Vineyard (84%) and growing partners in Napa Valley. Dense dark fruit notes abound in this robust Cabernet Sauvignon, with ripe blackberry, cassis and wild blueberries leading the charge. Pronounced earth tones follow suit, along with a Mayan chocolate spiciness on the firm, lasting finish. 93+ pts - The Wine Advocate
Gravity® Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on one of the lowest slopes of the Monte Rosso Vineyard.
Its location on the edge of a canyon yields grapes with exceptional intensity. Decadent dark fruit notes of plum and black raspberry are balanced with a plethora of supporting players – hints of cinnamon, cedar, graphite and pepper add dimension and complexity to this strikingly rich red blend. 92 pts - Wine Enthusiast
