1998 Villa Mt Eden Zinfandel Monte Rosso
Sonoma Valley, California
 
WB Rating: 87

 
Alcohol by volume: 15.4%
Price at time of purchase: $16.00 (Current release)
 
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Not stated. Assumed 100% Zinfandel.

Very full and forward with a velvety texture. Perfumed nose, intense red-fruit flavors like some sort of turbo-Beaujolais (I mean this positively). Rich, sweet (but not from sugar) mouth feel, which seems to be a Monte Rosso vineyard characteristic. At $16, a good buy. (HK) - HK 2000-06-08
