Winemaker's Notes:

Composition : 75% Zinfandel, 22% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouchet

This is a rich and exotic fruit-packed Zinfandel. A bouquet of ripe black currant and blackberry with creamy ripe cherry essences is followed by flavors of currant and vanilla with hints of briary spice and cracked black pepper. It is expected to age gracefully for 5-7 years, but is also ready to be enjoyed it in its youth.

Pair it with steak Diane in chive sauce, or a chicken liver pilaf with cherry tomatoes and mushrooms.

My Notes:

About Rosenblum Cellars:

Rosenblum Cellars Winery is located in the historic Todd Shipyard Building in the City of Alameda. The picturesque building constructed around 1910 sits right at the edge of San Francisco Bay. Our view is spectacular, and the cooling bay breezes give us natural air conditioning. The grapes for our wines come from over 30 different vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Contra Costa County. Many of the vineyards are over 75 years old, head-pruned and dry farmed. The old plow on our labels symbolizes our down-to-earth and natural style of winemaking.
