Rombauer Zinfandel 2017
Our classic California Zinfandel is dark purple-ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of blackberry and raspberry meld with clove and spice. Lush flavors of raspberry, blackberry jam, plums and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of white pepper in the background. Plush and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.
Soft and jammy, with easygoing raspberry, toasty and pepper flavors. Drink now through 2022.
A lot of sweetness comes through the initially spicy and complex aromas of this high-octane wine, turning to maple and milk chocolate on the palate wrapped in a soft, low-acid texture.
Incorporating 5% Petite Sirah, the 2017 Zinfandel offers plenty of baked cherry and plum fruits as well as spice and cedar notes, medium body, and a sweetly fruited yet grippy style on the palate.
