Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Paso Robles Reserve Richard Sauret 2009
79% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 6% Alicante Bouschet. Pungent aromas flaunt a distinguished minerality over sultry, dark fruit. In the nose, dark cherry and rhubarb serve as a backdrop to fragrant spices and flinty limestone. Deep and brooding, the palate carries an earthy meatiness and fleshy black plum. Accents of black raspberry and cassis pick up the back of the palate as sturdy tannins hold the long finish. Pair this wine with a grilled pepper steak or with pasta dressed in a spicy red sauce.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Wow, what a dissapointment. Like many Zins now, this wine was more of a port than a table wine. Over ripe, Over done, port like flavors. Alcohol too high. Not good
Wow A really big Zin. Full body and very dark color. On the nose you get the typical berry aroma. Some oak and picked up vanilla and a lot of berry flavors dancing around your palate. I expected more tannins. This wine is huge and with its multiple layers of flavors it may be difficult to match the right food. Better to drink and enjoy on its own.
Huge and extracted. Almost porty in nature and body with oak and vanilla. Make sure to drink with huge foods.
