Rosenblum Petite Syrah Pickett Road Vineyard 2005 wine review by (PB)
I bought this on a summer trip to Los Angeles paying $30 for it at a Bev Mo in AltaDena. I opened it for our Christmas dinner and was letting it breathe when it somehow tipped over and I lost about a third of the bottle to the floor.
It is nearly black on the pour with intense deep pigmentation of purple black cherry hues to the rim. The bouquet of this wine is full of ripe fruit of black raspberries with a subtle note of black pepper and sweet licorice hints as it opens.
The wine is elegantly textured with lovely balance of sweet black licorice, ripe plums and dark berries and is just delicious.
Raise a glass of this treat and keep it in the bottle and off the floor!
