Montevina Zinfandel (Amador County) 2003 review by (PB)
Slightly aging garnet with brambly, wild berry and cranberry bouquet with blueberry note on licorice.
Palate--Celery first impression with stingy fruit, overall berry tastes with solid Zin, finish that's a bit rustic. I believe I paid around $9 for this and would probably pass for a Cline Zin at the same price. Raise a glass though of good Zin--California's own native grape!
