Plum and other berries on the nose. Very hot and acidic. Black pepper and an odd mix of subtle strawberries and Robitussin (but in a good way).
Barrel aged, 40% French Oak and 60% American Oak with an alcohol content of 14.6%. Not too spicy, but definitely a fruit-forward wine; raspberry and cherry flavors and overtones of vanilla. Great value for the money ($8.49).
Strong hint of smoke, black pepper, and blueberry on the nose, blueberry overwhelms on the mid-palate and finish. 87 points.
Surprisingly quite a bit smoother than I was expecting. I agree with a previous reviewer about this wine being hot and acidic. Very pretty dark rose color. Decent wine for the price.
Rich fruit taste and smooth for the price. I like it much better than the next vintage xxxii.
External Reviews for Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Vintners Cuvee XXXI California
Superripe tasting, with gobs of raspberry jam flavors and a spicy, cedary note that's a bit rustic and tannic, but nothing that a slice of pizza won't resolve. Drink now.
Lovely bright fruit of old vine Contra Costa Zin blended with a touch Paso Robles Zin, resulting in a wine that features rich raspberry and cherry flavors that lay softly on the palate. Enjoy with ribs, pizza or a red-sauced pasta.
Solid, reliable, perennial favorite sourced from various regions of California, made into individual lots of wine and then blended into this familiar cuvée. Lovely raspberry and cherry fruits followed by a silky smooth finish.
Zin fanatics of the world rejoice! Rosenblum's Vintner's Cuvée (a blend of wines from various regions) is delightfully delicious and amazingly affordable. The lovely raspberry and cherry fruit and surprising complexity would complement barbecue, bratwurst or baked beans. This is a wine to buy by the case.
Lively and focused, with tart raspberry, herb and sweet floral flavors, framed by firm tannins that linger. An excellent value. Drink now.
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, it's a little hot in alcohol, but just fine with ribs slathered in sauce.
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.
Wine Tasting Notes The Cuvee features aromas of black cherry, blackberry and raspberry, as well as spice and vanilla overtones. It is a friendly, drinkable, zesty style Zinfandel at a very affordable price. Medium-bodied and replete with acidity, this food-friendly wine pairs well with pizza, pasta, barbecue meats and poultry, as well as Italian and Mediterranean style foods.
