Rombauer Zinfandel California 2012
'Highly Recommended' and 88 points California Grapevine: Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, cedary, briary, jammy, raspberry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of dill, black pepper, and vanilla bean; full body; big, rich, juicy, very ripe, red and black fruit flavors; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Stylistic, showing hints of residual sugar and some late harvest character.15.9% alcohol; blended with 4% Petite Sirah; released April 2014. (Oct 2014)
I have a new world palate but this wine is way over the top. Really, really sweet.
This wine is the reason I joined Snooth. It is my favorite wine, by far. It is rich, decadent, and reasonably priced for a wine of such high quality. It is the only wine that I purchase by the case. I love it that much.
External Reviews for Rombauer Zinfandel California
Rich, vibrant, and juicy, this wine boasts aromas of cherry and wild berry, with soft notes of black pepper. Tightly packed layers of cranberries, wild berries, and ripe cherries flow together with a touch of allspice for a rich, full flavor. Moderate tannins show in the rich, mouth filling finish.
