Rosenblum Monte Rosso Vineyard Reserve Zinfandel 2008 wine review by (PB)
If you follow this blog you know I am a Zinfandel zealot so I snatched a couple bottles of another one of Rosenblum's 2 dozen or so single vineyard Zins. I paid $20 for this bottle which is a great price at about half of what it would normally run.
Darker black cherry hue with perfectly wild, brambly blackberry Zin aromas with a suggestion of mint. With ample time to open, more aromas of eucalyptus/menthol and chocolate nuances.
Palate--textured rich berries with creme brulee notes and a slight vanilla finish.
This was a nice bargain at the price even if a little hot--probably just its immaturity.
I love Rosenblum Zins--what else can I say but "raise a glass!"
