Review: 2010 Charter Oak Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Monte Rosso Vineyard


charter oak wineThis winery specializes in Zinfandel, including some single vineyard bottlings like this one from the Monte Rosso Vineyard in Sonoma. The wine is a dense and heady (15.0% abv) Zin, loaded with fresh plums, blackberries, and menthol on the nose. The palate is similar, with a touch of liquified milk chocolate, some cedar notes, and plenty of berries. The moderate finish offers balance. This isn’t quite the greatest Zinfandel I’ve ever had, but winemaker Robert Fanucci certainly knows what he’s doing with this troublesome grape.
