Tasted with a number of other '00 Rosenblum Zins, this was by far the earthiest and most idiosyncratic. Herbs and dried brush add complexity to the plum/prune and dark cherry fruit. There is also a noticeable layer of chocolate in the flavor profile. Like most of the 2000's we tried, this wine is not as intense as some previous years, but otherwise is another winner. - HK 2002-09-29
