Rattlesnake Zinfandel is a tribute to the crest called Rattlesnake Hill, the highest point of the Monte Rosso Vineyard and a site known for rattlesnakes living among the vines. During the day, the snakes seek the abundant sunshine and in the evening, they coil inside and around the vines.
A rich, textured and inky-dark Zinfandel with an alluring juicy quality. Layered ripe fruits tones of plum, black cherry and blueberry tie together with black pepper, licorice and cocoa dust. The lasting finish adds spices and vanilla to frame the fruit.
The Mount Peak story begins more than a century ago at the celebrated Monte Rosso Vineyard and culminates with the revival of Mount Peak Winery, a vestige of one of California’s ghost wineries. Our wines are inspired by this great place, and we pay tribute to the extraordinary winery that once stood there by capturing its enduring spirit in our wine.
