“92. Amapola Creek 2010 Zinfandel, Monte Rosso Vineyards, Vinas Antiguas, Sonoma Valley ($42) Chocolate cherry-blueberry jams only so far: Enter a searing acidity and fresh aaah. Spiced with cracked pepper and nutmeg to pique the taste buds but softens with grilled meats and fatty foods, red sauce or a hunk of cheese. This dry-farmed Zin from 118-year-old vines is from legendary winemaker Dick Arrowood."
