Rosenblum Zinfandel Rock Pile Road 2003 wine review by (PB)

(NW) treated at his suburban Boston pad bringing out this Wine Spectator top pick Zin for the year it came out garnering a big 94 points. This Zin is gargantuan with anise, ripe blackberry and plum aromas that are wonderful. (check his review below)

The palate is rich, ripe intense with espresso mocha notes and enormous black cherry flavor with cedar at the back. This wine just keeps going with awesome wine flavors. How much for a such a special wine? Forget the outrageous prices of impossible to find boutique wines or classified Bordeaux. This sizzling Zin was $32 but forget about finding it now. If you don't have one, you won't find one. But raise a glass of any of the many Rosenblum single vineyard Zins. I haven't had a marginal one yet.

  1. Had the newly released Rockpile (I bought every bottle (7)in the store. It is every bit as good as the 2003. Price increased a bit, but one to have in the cellar.
