Rosenblum Cellars Vintner's Cuvee XXXVI Zinfandel, California
From Sonoma, this is an excellent value at about $11. Aged for 8 months in American oak, prior to bottling a bit of Petit Syrah is added to round out the profile. Notes of blue and red fruits including blackberry, blueberry are prevalent on the nose, while the palate shows signs of raspberry, white pepper and spice. Chewy and rambunctious, this is a good everyday wine you can pair with barbecue or pizza easily. Enjoy! You may be able to find it for much lower price depending on your location.
