Rombauer Zinfandel California 2011
Strikingly fruit-forward. Dark red in color with a ruby hue. Bursting aromas of ripe cranberries, blackberries and crushed raspberries. Nuances of clove and mint add character and dimension to the ripe fruit flavors. Beautiful acidity intertwined with richness seamlessly create an expressive and dense mid-palate. Vanilla and plum flavors round out an unforgettable finish. 93% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Syrah. Alcohol 15.9%. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 89 points by California Grapevine.
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.

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.
