This wine has a heritage and pedigree second to none in the Zinfandel world. Our only question was would the terroir of high mountain Lake County carry it forward? Well the answer is a resounding "Yes!" The wine exhibits wild black cherries, and violets in the bouquet which reflects its red soil and mountain roots. And dark smoky blackberries with hints of Asian spice in the flavors which are true to the St. Peter's clone of fruit.
Connoisseurs' GuideFocused on ripe berries with touches of smoky oak and hints of dark soils, the aromas of this fairly full-bodied effort take on a bit of quince-like brightness, and like so many of this year's entries from Rosenblum, the wine has a zesty edge to its ripe flavors. It winds up being a fine choice for service alongside pork roasts yet will work also with pastas.
