Huge nose of blackberry pie, black cherry, and a note of banana chips
Sweet tea and strawberry on the plushly textured palate
Sweet finish with mocha and more dark berries
This is a huge wine, so you need to be ready for it. It's dense and rich, bordering on sweet and sticky. Rosenblum performs this highly extracted style with some of their Zinfandels as well as this Petite Sirah.
I really like this wine, but I was in the mood for this style when I opened it. I had a pretty good idea what was in the bottle after tasting the prior vintage twice. The bottle cost me $19. Raise a glass!
