Outstanding, super-rich Zinfandel without any of the overt raisiny over-ripeness that we sometimes find objectionable in expensive Rosenblum bottlings. This one overflows with ripe fruit and spice - briary dark berries, crunchy sweet cranberries, vanilla, mint. Very forward aromas, mouth-coating fruit, spicy long finish. Beautifully balanced, good with rich food. Nothing over-the-top about it - just one exceptionally pleasant Zinfandel. - HK 2008-12-25
