Fantastic new discovery!
              
94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2019 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity, primarily Syrah with a touch of Viognier and Zinfandel, comes mostly from the Monte Rosso Vineyard. It has an opaque ruby-purple color and intense, aromatic layers of wild berry and blueberry jam, tar, apricot, aniseed, mint leaves and violet. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and ripe, with a surprisingly silky texture and loads of spicy accents fanning out on the long finish. This lush, hedonistic blend deserves another 3-5 years in bottle."

94 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This concentrated, deep and well-layered wine made from Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Viognier is absolutely drenched in ripe black fruits laced with tempting mint, clove and tobacco nuances. It is complex, velvety in texture and remarkably flavorful, ending with a lingering finish."

The story of Mount Peak Winery begins more than a century ago at the celebrated Monte Rosso Vineyard and culminates with the recent revival of the brand by Gallo. A vestige of one of California's great "ghost" wineries, the wines are a tribute to the extraordinary facility that once stood there. Originally built in 1886, Mount Peak was a marvel of innovation with its three-story, gravity-flow system built from rock directly sourced from the dry-farmed Monte Rosso vineyard. While it ultimately emerged as one of California's top producers, it was closed during Prohibition and left abandoned to the elements, laying silent for decades. Over 130 years later, Gallo has revived the site and the vineyard, perched at nearly 1,300 feet along the spine of the Mayacamas Mountains, straddling the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The steep hillsides are set against a dramatic backdrop and the new Mount Peak label will focus on Cabernet, Zinfandel, and a red blend from the original Monte Rosso fruit. The Gravity is made from plots within the vineyard as well as fruit sourced from Frei Ranch in Dry Creek Valley and Snows Lake in Lake County. It's 33% Petite Syrah, 29% Cab, 21% Zin, 10% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and 2% Barbera.
