The Monster as it turns out is not to be feared but enjoyed. This Zinfandel has a lot to offer. The wine is a medium ruby red and the nose will discover spicy blackberry, raspberry along with a touch of savory cedar. A mouthful of wine is where you find the candied, jammy fruit to be enjoyed. Tannins are integrated well into the wine along with an ample body The Monster has a generous finish. Alcohol is 15.2% adding a nice touch of warmth while not overpowering.
