A very pleasant surprise! Bold, sweet, bursting with berry flavors, yet with a smooth finish. A bit pricey for an every day wine at $35.00 per bottle. A very nice special occasion wine with a tri-tip roast, prime rib, or pasta. Always a good choice when going to a dinner party.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Keyed on candied blackberries in the nose and more than just a touch sweet on the palate, this sugary working wanders out of the conventional table-wine realm, yet it gets points for balance and absolute cleanliness, and those looking for the uncommon sweet red might find things to like.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Captures the essence of California Zinfandel in a ripe, fruit-driven wine filled with aromas of boysenberries, raspberries and wild berries. It's loaded with flavors of ripe, zesty wild berry and blackberry jam that picks up spicy, peppery notes. It finishes with a fantastic burst of fruit and concentrated berry flavors. Drink now or let age for 2-4 years.

Winemaker's Notes:Opening with a burst, this wine boasts aromas of blackberry and boysenberry jam. On the palate, rich, juicy fruit loaded with ripe wild berries, plum, fig and black cherry flavors. Supple tannins and smooth oak notes show in the lush, mouth-filling finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include braised short ribs over wild mushroom risotto, pizza, and pork tenderloin.

Ripe and complex, concentrated with rich, juicy, bright plum, wild berry, black cherry and spicy, peppery notes. Impressive for its core of fruit, balanced, supple tannins and fruity aftertaste. Drink now through 2004.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Rombauer Vineyards' Zinandel represents the very essence of California Zinfandel. Full bodied, fruit forward, and juicy, this wine boasts bright aromas of black cherry and plum, with a light spicy character all it's own. Layers of cranberries, plums, and dark berries flow together for a rich, full flavor with a sensational mouth feel. A dark berry fruit finish lingers on the palate, complementing the rich flavors of this beautiful wine.
