Rosenblum Rockpile Rd Zinfandel (Rockpile Road Vineyard) 2006 wine review by (PB)
Palate--Plush mouth feel with big thick extracted hyper-fruity and jammy blackberries and wild spicy foliage. Nice berryful finish.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! THIS is why I drink wine. This wine is peak right now and yet the flavor does not reveal any aging commensurate with the wine's color. By the color I would say drink this NOW; by the palate I would say drink this wine now but it should be outstanding for another couple 3 years.
At any rate-- this Rosenblume single vineyard Zin will set you back about $35 but oh my oh my, you are worth it! I will be enjoying this with a grilled thick T-bone split with my wife and grilled new potatoes with fennel pollen. I am delirious with anticipation! Raise a glass--YES!
