The Rosenblum 2002 Rockpile Road Zinfandel is made from 100 year old Zinfandel vines from the winery’s St. Peter’s Church vineyard. This is my favorite Rosenblum wine, and they make several great ones. It is an impressive translation of the AVA’s viticultural growing conditions.
The winery’s 2002 Monte Rosso Zinfandel is an intense wine that captures the essence of the varietal beautifully. Ripe fruit and chocolate flavors are framed by substantial, but mellow tannins.
The 2001 Lyons Vineyard Zinfandel is sourced from century old vines grown on the sunny, eastern hillsides of the Napa Valley. The high alcohol content of this wine is balanced by fruit and strong tannins. This is one of the most full bodied Zins I have ever tasted.
