2014 Keating 'Montecillo' Zinfandel, Moon Mountain District

The Keating Sonoma Valley Zinfandel comes from the Montecillo vineyard sitting at 1500' overlooking Sonoma Valley. 2014 was a very good vintage for Zinfandel. The dry summer and occasional heat spike followed by cool nights led to enormous fruit and high acidity. You might notice a slight earthiness in the nose, which is typical from this mountain vineyard with rocky soil. However, the dominating flavors for this bottle are going to be rich, dark fruits. Moderate tannins will help this wine age longer than the typical Zinfandel.

Cheers!
