Roshambo Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley the Reverend 2009
I normally like 'big' wines, but to me this one managed to be both big and shallow at the same time. Very spicy, but not that complex. I'm glad I got it on sale. (But my husband really liked it, so maybe try it for yourself and see.)Add winemaker's notes

A strong flavored brew, it almost becomes enjoyable, almost.
Nice long finish on this brambly blackberry-flavored wine. Cracked pepper aromas and spiciness on the finish.
An outstanding zin, great aroma and an outstanding flavor. I would stock up on this wine if you can still find it.
A great zin, I enjoy the complexity of the taste and the aroma is enjoyable.
All I have to say about this one is, WOW. We visited their new Sonoma tasting room last weekend and this bottle called to me. Not sure which reverend they've named it after, but this wine is every bit as exciting as a Reverend Horton Heat show!!
Like the previous Reverends, this one does not disappoint. Well made. Great Zin berry type fruit. Goes extremely well with grilled lamb.
External Reviews for Roshambo Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley the Reverend
Why DO we call this wine the reverend? Wait until you taste it. Just like an old fire and brimstone sermon, it starts easy and lures you in with scents of Christmas spices. And then it kicks up the volume with an explosion of juicy red and black berries, plums and chocolate. To finish you are called up to the altar to be healed by a smack to the forehead of spicy, smooth tannins. You'll be back next Sunday for some more.
