Once again we've found one heck of a deal on a top notch "Reserve" series Rosenblum Zinfandel. After the huge success we had with the St. Peter's Church bottling this year, we decided to see if we could go back to the well one more time for Zinfandel goodness. One of the premiere producers of Zinfandel, Rosenblum has once again knocked it out of the park with this bottling from the Richard Sauret Vineyard. This hill-top vineyard in Paso Robles is a perfect location to allow this Zin to become big and powerful yet refined and juicy. Blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouchet this wine is brimming with dense aromas of sweetened chocolate, road tar, fresh plum and caramel. Perfectly ripe, juicy flavors of cassis, black olive, raspberry jam and vanilla bean pair nicely with a soft mouth coating texture and Zin's trademark long, spicy, peppery finish. This is a wine that is perfect for the summer: patios, weekend getaways and BBQs galore, easy to drink and easier to enjoy.
