    Highly Rated Zinfandel, Episode #316, 9/17/2007, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 91+ points

    (CHATEAU MONTELENA ESTATE ZINFANDEL) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-beautiful; Grape/Strawberry Laffy Taffy; little burnt Pine Cone action; TASTE-this wine is juicy; explosive on the palate; a black raspberry component on the mid-palate; little hints of black pepper; massive structure; big wine; little heat; very integrated, impressed w/ the overall silkiness; long finish; plum wrapped in Prosciutto; New World, but not NW obnoxious; a very good effort; RP-90; GV-91+
