Winemaker Notes

Very bright pomegranate cherry fruit, brown sugary-caramel oak Fragrant Asian spices—Chinese 5-spice in milk chocolate and cocoa. Mouthfeel is creamy yet tangy, quite drinkable now but will age good 10-15 years. Very mouthfilling!

COMMENTARY: Monga has always been one of my favorites from Carol Shelton's Zinfandel stable. The 2016 Monga Zin Old Vines is excellent. TASTING NOTES: This wine packs a wallop, yet stays well-balanced. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, berries, and licorice make it a perfect choice with savory meat stews. (Tasted: August 20, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

California

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
