Wine-Buyer scored this wine an amazing 90 points, and giving the NH wine lover some balance in making this their wine purchase.
When I think of Zinfandel, I think of Zing, of Zest, and some essence of spice, pepper (White or Black), undercurrents of tobacco, or, chocolate, mocha, coffee, even bacon, but always with berry-richness that fills the mouth with a sense of furring (Gentle or Luscious), that can be smooth or coarse, but properly balanced with acidity, tannin, alcohol, and fruit.
At $14.00, I can't recommend this wine.
Rosenblum Paso Robles 2007 Zinfandel, $7.40-$19.00, 87 points, greets you with a beautiful aroma. This is a softer Zinfandel, ripe and quite drinkable, but just might get lost with some of of the richer spicier fair. It does have a fine finish, just not the excitement.
Rosenblum has some high-end Zins, but priced between $7.40 and $19.00, and paired with lighter Zinfandel cuisine, this is a recommend wine.
