2000 Rosenblum Zinfandel Rhodes Vineyard Annette's Reserve
Redwood Valley, Mendocino, California
WB Rating: 91

Alcohol by volume: 14.8%
Price at time of purchase: $28.00 (from winery)
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): 86% Zin, 8% Carignan, 6% Petite Sirah

This mouthfilling wine possesses a slightly higher percentage of Zin than the very good '99. It is also a much bigger, deeper wine.. The 2000 has an extremely forward, attractive dark berry-tinged nose, and complex, super-spicy, rich dark raspberry and floral flavors. Full, long, almost sweet fruit-filled finish. Our favorite Annette's yet. This wine was tasted after a couple of insipid Cabs, and was like nectar compared to those weaklings. - WB team 2003-01-10
