Rosenblum Zinfandel Aparicio Vineyard 2005 wine review by (PB)
Tired of the same old $10 wines, I used Memorial Day as an excuse to "open that bottle" and chose this one since I was grilling ribs.
This wine is a pretty cranberry hue with super wild, brambly, floral, spicy, with subtle dark baker's chocolate underneath rich blackberry jam notes.
Palate--Wow! Ultra sweet--yet not sweet-- with a spiced crazed foundation of dense, ripe berry fruit that keeps on giving. Later on, it is just big, and delicious with ceder notes and a finish that makes you remember why you drink wine.
For $24, why not? Raise a glass to our armed forces who keep us free to enjoy such pleasures as ripe, rich Zinfandel!
