Another ridiculously rich, delicious, chewy, impenetrably opaque Petite Sirah from Rosenblum. Super ripe, jammy raspberry/blackberry fruit with lots of vanilla oak and balsam and a delightfully rich yet chalky mouth feel. How Rosenblum pumps this much flavor into these wines is a wondrous mystery. Not especially complex, I suppose, but a delight, and a deal at $19. - WB Team 2005-04-13
