2004 Rosenblum "Rockpile Road Vineyard" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1021677 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich as sin, the '04 Rockpile Zin got enormously ripe but has been fermented to dryness, at the cost of very high alcohol. The flavors are a wonder. It's all about chocolate, crème de cassis, anisette, and the most wonderfully rich, spicy buttery, toasty vanilla bean. Inner quote mark (12/2006)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A barrel sample of the 2004 Zinfandel Rockpile Road Vineyard reveals impressive density and a more serious, rugged constitution with abundant fruit, glycerin, power, and structure. It will benefit from a year of bottle age, and drink well for 7-8 years, possibly longer. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2006)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark The increasingly familiar family brand of extreme ripeness is once again plainly evident here, but while evoking chocolate, caramel and vanilla to spare, the wine surprises with plenty of genuine fruit. Very full-bodied and a long way from polished, it coarsens and heats up at the finish, yet, its nominal tannins and high alcohol notwithstanding, it tenaciously hangs on to its themes of rich oak and blackberry fruit and should benefit from three or four years of time in the cellar. Inner quote mark (10/2006)

K&L Notes

The bouquet of this rich, extracted wine shows ripe black cherry and black currant with hints of vanilla and black pepper. The flavors are ripe black cherry, currant and creamy spice with notes of dark chocolate. This rich Dry Creek Zin will nicely accompany hearty pasta and grilled marinated salmon, slow-smoked pork ribs, or duck à l’orange.
