Rombauer Zinfandel 2017
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Zinfandel contains 6% Petite Sirah. Medium garnet-purple colored, it gives up preserved plums, raspberry pie and Black Forest cake with baking spices, underbrush and potpourri in the background. The palate is full-bodied, plush and juicy with loads of earth and spice layers on the finish.
Wine SpectatorSoft and jammy, with easygoing raspberry, toasty and pepper flavors. Drink now through 2022. 45,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastA 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.
