Rosenblum Cellars Petite Sirah Rockpile Rockpile Road Vineyard 2007
Nice. I didn't think it was as sweet or chocolatey as the tasting notes suggest. What I mostly got was kitchen spices. Overall I would describe it as pretty balanced, and it went nicely with our meal.Add winemaker's notes

Decanting helps this one. A BevMo wine club selection.
I love it! Fruit bomb. Awesome. There's also another level of spice to this that really makes it for me. ::Update:: Went back and tasted again. Wasn't quite as blown away. Maybe it was the different glass or weather??? Still excellent for the price, and I do still really like this wine. Only knocked it down half a glass!
Very good wine for the price. Lots of fruit in the nose and a touch of pepper.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Petite Sirah Rockpile Rockpile Road Vineyard
A Petite Sirah wine from California in USA. 2006 Rosenblum Cellars Petite Sirah Heritage Clones 750ml
This Petite Sirah is bold, yet elegant. Bringing Carignane into the blend adds a broader and softer dimension to the finished wine, along with a hint of rose petal in the bouquet punctuated with currants, blackberry, pepper and earthy spice. The flavors are of ripe dense blackberries, hints of vanilla, currants, black olives, and exotic spices. While this wine should age from 12 to 20 years, don't miss the opportunity to experience it now.
Wine Tasting NotesThis wine exhibits great color with a bouquet and flavors of ripe blackberries, plums, chocolate, black pepper, violets and spice. Contra Costa will soon be known as the Mecca for Petite Sirah. This wine is amazing both in aromatics and flavors, not to mention the color, which is jet black.
