External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel California Vintner's Cuvée XXII
This zinfandelrsquo;s bold character puts it in a class of its own. It opens with a robust, fruit-infused flavor. Hints of cherry and raspberry linger on the palate. Its finish is exceptionally smooth and comforting. Enjoy this balanced, value-priced wine tonight.
Superripe tasting, with gobs of raspberry jam flavors and a spicy, cedary note thatrsquo;s a bit rustic and tannic, but nothing that a slice of pizza wonrsquo;t resolve. Drink now.
Kent Rosenblum is a California Zin master. This blend is from Lodi, Mendocino County, Paso Robles and Lake County. Rich and broad-shouldered, with lively spice, wild berry, plum and blackberry flavors anchored by chewy tannins.
This is a good price for a wine of this caliber. Rich and thick in jammy cherry, mocha and spice flavors. Dry, and with ripe, sweet tannins, itrsquo;s a little hot in alcohol, but just fine with ribs slathered in sauce.
Lovely, bright jammy cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of black pepper and spice is the main focus of this fruit-centered wine. It is a very friendly, drinkable, zesty style of Zinfandel at a very affordable price mdash; a versatile wine that goes well with pasta, barbecue meats and poultry, and Italian and Mediterranean style foods.
This is one of the most reliable Zinfandels in the market today. It is soft, smooth and has typical ldquo;Zinrdquo; style. Enjoy with hot dogs, chips and dips and friends.
Solid, reliable, perennial favorite sourced from various regions of California, made into individual lots of wine and then blended into this familiar cuveacute;e. Lovely raspberry and cherry fruits followed by a silky smooth finish.
Juicy, with a streak of orange peel running through the thick, jammy flavors and black pepper and wild berry notes. Drink now. 6,500 cases made. (JL)
