Food Pairings for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel California
Outstanding, one of Rosenblum's best Zinfandels and that is saying a lot.
raisin - dark plum light spice - very nice
Youthful tannins. Some good fruit with nice spicyness. Needs time.
Very rich mouthfeel. Thick fruity, syrupy feel. Integrated tannins. Give it a year for tannins to soften.
Super herbaceous nose and not in a good way. Green vegetables. Tons of baking spice, on a very earthy palate. Brambly, briary fruit. Sage. Stone. - Blind tasted at Schreiner's Winers zin tasting 9/18/10
Another excellent Zinefindel from Rosenblum. Blackberries with vanilla undertones make this an extremely smooth wine that is equally good with food or alone.
Fragant rasberry nose with a hint of floral notes. Good round Zinfandel.
External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel California
Aromas of wild raspberry, blackberry and a touch vanilla come all wrapped up with subtle hints of cocoa and mint. The flavors are even more extracted and compelling than the aromas. A cornucopia of rich raspberry, blackberry and cherry with hints of clove and mint explode on the palate. The finish on this wine is so intense that it will make you wonder if life can get any better.
Wine Tasting NotesThis wine reflects the relative divinity of the vineyard. This Zinfandel was heaven sent. Ripe cassis and blackberry fruit pervade the bouquet followed by whiffs of ripe, dark cherries and currants with elements of chocolate, licorice and menthol. The finished wine shows flavors of blackberry and currant, with hints of cigar box, coffee, mocha and hazelnut; with a defined acid and soft tannin backbone.
This is a rich and exotic fruit-packed Zinfandel. A bouquet of ripe black currant and blackberry with creamy ripe cherry essences is followed by flavors of currant and vanilla with hints of briary spice and cracked black pepper. We expect it to age gracefully for 5-7 years, but the opportunity to enjoy it in its youth shouldnt be missed.
Wine Advocate ReviewAn outstanding effort is the broodingly backward, dense ruby/purple-colored 2005 Zinfandel Harris-Kratka Vineyard. A tannic blend of 75% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, and 10% Carignan, it exhibits notes of seaweed, garrigue, pepper, kirsch, darker fruits, spice box, and earth. Abundant acidity and tannin suggest another year of bottle age will be beneficial. It should keep for 5-7 years.Wine Tasting NotesThis wine shows intense black cherry and ripe plum fruit typical of the Alexander Valley. It is smooth, silky and exotic on the palate with hints of violets, rose petal, vanilla and currants. Drink this sumptuous wine alongside filet mignon, rack of lamb or even a well-aged duck breast with wild berry compote.

Aromas of wild raspberry, blackberry and a touch of vanilla, this special Reserve wine is filled with flavors of rich, ripe berry and cherry, with hints of clove and eucalyptus that explode on the palate.
