Wine Wednesday|Rosenblum Vintner’s Cuvée XXXIII Zinfandel

Happy Wednesday!

Yummy yummy yummy yummy Zinfandels!  This one was fantastic.  Very peppery (Zinfandels are spicy, often with strong pepper flavor) and tasting very strongly of fruit, most noticeable raspberries.  Even I could taste them.  The wine was so fruity, that it could have bordered on adult fruit punch if it hadn’t been so well balanced with spiciness.  Very smooth, not a lot of heat at the end, and highly enjoyable, this is another very nice bottle that left us both hankering for a steak or a lamb chop to go with.  The fact that the second glass is even better than the first (likely due to a little breathing), makes this another “alarmingly drinkable” wine.

The only downside – it’s price.  Still a very affordable $9.99 at work, it’s more than twice the price of the last two Zins we tasted and not twice the price better.  This one might be a little easier to find and around more consistently, but for my money*, I’d happily wait around for the Grifone to come back in stock.  Still, this is a good one to have in the back pocket in case you need a solid Zin to give as a gift or if you just want to spend a little extra money on your wine.  If you’re a Zinfandel lover, I think you will adore this one.

Until next time!

Cheers.

*Remembering, of course, that I am exceedingly cheap.  Kind of “to a fault” cheap.
