We went shopping today and decided to have a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. I had a burger and the Mrs had sirloin tacos. So, we decided we would like to have some red wine. I've never had a Rombauer Zin before and this sounded intriguing. Believe me this is like no Dry Creek Valley Zin that I would normally have. Talk about upper case FRUIT--berries, figs, raisins, you pick it, along with maybe a touch of spearmint. Between all the fruit and the high alcohol (15.9% ABV) this wine is almost sweet. It is more like that Apothic stuff than any other Zin I might normally go for.

Blackberry jammy with fiery long finish. Spicy almost too sweet.

A big massive Zin with all the elements of real Zins back in the sixties and early seventies until the overly sweet and syrupy components kicked in. Too cloying. The finish is like drinking a dessert wine. Disappointed.

Best Zin ever - rich dark fruits, not too dry.

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.

Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside.

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.

This is rich and vibrant zin from the makers of one of California's most popular chardonnays, blending fruit from some of California's top regions for the varietal: Amador, Napa, Lake and El Dorado. Juicy aromas and flavors of wild cherries and tangy cranberries spiked with black pepper and allspice keep you intrigued from first sniff to last sip. Ripe, medium-grained tannins round out the finish.

A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2009 Rombauer Zinfandel 750ml

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 - Dark ruby color; rich, ripe aromas of boysenberry, raspberry and nuances of vanilla. Robust, jammy wildberry fruit flavors frame this luscious and velvety wine. Subtle tannins offer a fruit forward finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include leg of lamb, BBQ ribs and dark chocolate.
