2010 Wine Guerrilla Monte Rosso Vineyard Zinfandel, Block E44, Sonoma Valley, CA, $40 (S) – Rating 90

A monster fruity Zinfandel with just the right touch of acidity for food pairing. It paired beautifully with a charcoal grilled flat-iron streak. A robust nose of black fruit, blackberry, plum and boysenberry with a hint of spice. Big flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, blackberry and dark spice with a soft tannin structure. Notes of espresso in the long finish. Give it about an hour to fully open. Buy This Wine
