When I saw the 2006 Rosenblum “St. Peter’s Church” Zinfandel offered for the insane price we have it at I really couldn’t believe it. I mean this is a wine that I’ve happily sold in the past for $45+ dollars, a wine that has always been the best of the incredibly deep Rosenblum Zinfandel portfolio, I’d go so far as to call it iconic California Zin. So I figured something must have been wrong with the wine, it must have had an off year, man was I wrong. It is rare to find a Zinfandel of this ilk any longer, one that effortlessly combines ripeness of fruit, peppery spice, bright acidity, complexity, length and a promise for continued development. I can get into details but it is sort of pointless, I’ll just get down to it, this is the best buy we’ve had in California wine since the massive Havens Merlot deal last year. If that is not enough to pique your interest I would think you have no pulse.
