Roshambo Red Blend Sonoma County Rock 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This is the wine that drew Annakin Skywalker to the Dark Side. With equal parts Syrah, Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, it's all big and bold, black and powerful, evoking plum and smoke and bacon. This is not just a wine... it's an experience. Be prepared to give up any benevolent thoughts you may have held on to. This is your ticket to the Dark Side.

Roshambo Winery:
Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson.

Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson. Our small, independent winery was named after the West Coast slang for the ancient children's game, "Rock, Paper, Scissors," and with our annual RPS Tournaments, Pirate Proms and Roshambustops, we like to think we are fighting for fun in a winey world. Buut... it's important to note that while we take pride in our storied history of creative branding, we know that it's what's inside the bottle that really counts. We have to appeal to your palates and senses as much as your spirit. Because no matter how slickly we package the stuff, we know we can't pull the wool over the oenophile's eyes... nor can we lure the beer and booze set to the Other Side of the Vine with a bogey in the bottle. The whole point of this adventure was to welcome a new crowd of people to the party - Gen-Xers , Boomers, Millenials and Unidentifiables alike - by providing a disarmingly fun context in which to encounter serious wine. Our offerings have been fortunate enough to catch critical praise - most recently, in Wine Enthusiast's March '08 Buying Guide (FJV Syrah: 93 Points, Reverend Zinfandel: 92 Points, "Rock" Rhone Blend: 90 Points). Though... we don't think you should buy a wine just because so and so says so. Read less

This is a lovely wine, big and bold but not too heavy handed. Syrah zin and Petite really blended together well. Firm but not too rough tannin followed by a proper amount of earth and dark fruits

A great zinfandel blend, the wine has a great aroma and a wonderful taste in the mouth. However the taste does not linger, but that was still not a big negative. The wine pairs with any spicy or ethnic food extremely well.
