Monte Rosso Vineyard.
A new project by Richard Arrowood and one of my haunts recommended as a very high quality zin.
This past Wednesday was my birthday (60...yikes!) and several weeks ago I purchased a coupled bottles, one to open in celebration. Upon pour very light in color. Ordinary flavors of blackberry, dark cherry,spice and a citrus note on the finish. Not the blockbuster that the reviews across the board would lead you to believe. Served blind I would have thought an ordinary, but pleasent, wine. It didn't seemed closed or flawed, just not the same wine that was reviewed. 16% Alc/vol. $31

This does sound like a depressing development. Too bad.

By the way, WW, what about this old bird Drew turning 60? These people around here seem to be getting older and older!
