Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel "Harris Kratka Vineyard" 2007
A deep purple hue leads aromas of brambly dark fruit, black cherry, tobacco and dried Asian spice. Lively flavors of boysenberry and cassis prance across the palate, weighted by well-developed oak complexity. With intricate structure up front and firm tannins supporting the finish, the Harris Kratka Zinfandel commands both power and finesse. Pair the refined, gracious offerings of this wine with hearty meat dishes or a creamy risotto. 75% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane , 10% Petite Sirah
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel "Harris Kratka Vineyard"
93 points and two stars from the Connoisseurs Guide to California Wine: "Nicely concentrated blackberry aromas gain extra range and interest from layered notes of spice, creamy oak and briar, and the deep fruit continues in flavors that have both wonderful berryish focus and solid tannic structure leading into a long, convincing finish. This lovely bottling comes on the heels of last year's success after several vintages in which Rosenblum seemed to lose the plot with the grapes from one of our favorite Zinfandel vineyards. This wine is not only full of juicy, ready-to-drink character but promises to hold up quite well in the bottle for many years to come." (Jan. 2009) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and briary, this is jammed with intense flavors. Aromas of blackberry jam and toasty sage lead to concentrated plum, licorice and white pepper flavors. Tannins firm up the finish. Best from 2011 through 2014." (09/09)
