A new name is being considered for the 2000, a blend of equal parts Primitivo and Zinfandel. The 2000 Primitivo/Zinfandel* is a delicious, Italian-styled effort offering abundant quantities of spice, sweet black cherry and currant fruit, smoke, dried herbs, leather, earth, and subtle American oak in the background. It's a rustic but full-flavored red to drink during its first 4-5 years of life.

This wine comes from Montelen's 9.5 acre estate Zinfandel vineyard. The vines are 30 years old. Given Bo Barrett?s obvious skill I would think his Zinfandels would perform better. Expansive aromas of plum and spice. Reasonably concentrated fruit on the palate that turns briary in the finish. Lowering this vineyard?s yields may do wonders for this wine. Drink now.
