Carol Shelton Zinfandel Monga Zin Lopez Vineyard 2013

Carol Shelton Zinfandel Monga Zin Lopez Vineyard 2013

Sku: 029993

A great choice for Thanksgiving dinner! Carol Shelton specializes in old-vine Zinfandel from some of California’s oldest vineyards. The 2012 Monga Zin hails from José Lopez’s Cucamonga Valley vineyard—planted in 1918 in San Bernardino County—one of the few vineyards to have survived the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. Carol uses the dry-farmed, certified organic bush vine Zinfandel to create this gorgeous, darkly colored wine with its dense bouquet of dark cherries and black raspberry jam and savory accents of fresh herbs and baking spices. It’s powerful yet perfectly balanced with gripping tannins and earthy complexity on the long and lasting finish.
