Rosenblum Black Muscat "Gallagher Reserve" 2006 review by (PB)
Light aged looking red with yellow hints at the rim. The bouquet yields stewed apricots and prune on a light, sweet foundation; after some time there is an amazing sweet basil aroma that saves this otherwise unremarkable wine.
Palate--full, thicker texture with some heft, and sweet acid frame. Fruit hints at a very light bodied port like wine as this is another fortified dessert wine.
It was pleasant enough and I raise a glass to (NW) of this blog from whom this wine came as a gift. But I suggest Rosenblum stick to what they do best which is Zinfandel!
