This 2012 vintage delivers classic Rombauer Zinfandel. The weight and dimension are immediately apparent by the dark purplish-ruby color. Ripe boysenberry, clove, black pepper and hints of raspberry aromas perfume from the glass. Plush and velvety flavors of dark berry fruits and vanilla flood the palate. A lengthy finish lingers for several minutes. Enjoy now through 2018.
A stunning example of the vintage. Ruby red color coats the glass. Slightly floral with a punch of concentrated plum, dark berry fruit and orange peel. Dense and rich, an unforgettable saturation of voluptuous, jammy flavors fold together. Sweet layers of black fruit build depth on the back palate. Finishing with nuances of vanilla and boysenberry jam that encourage another taste. Enjoy now through 2018.
The benefits of a mature vineyard are showcased in this wine. The dry farmed vines appreciated the early rain and created grapes that explode with flavor. Purplish-red color with a ruby hue. Bursting with wild berries and spice notes. The floral essence leads to a rich and vibrant mouthfeel. Velvety layers of cranberry, raspberry and licorice intertwine with sweet tannins for a lingering finish.
Drink now through 2016.
