Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel, Reserve, Sonoma Valley, 2007
The Monte Rosso Vineyard sits 1400 feet above the Sonoma Valley floor, its rolling hills and red soils supporting head-pruned and dry-farmed vines that have been in existence since the 1880s. This hearty wine displays mountain fruit characteristics - a bouquet loaded with black raspberry and vanilla followed by rich, dark cherry, mint and currant flavors. Pair this wonderful wine with grilled steak, lamb or a hearty stew. Alc. 15.5% by vol.
