Keep them coming is all I can say about Rosenblum's single vineyard Zins! The 2001 Richard Sauret Vineyard starts off with plenty of pleasing color. The ruby core is totally opaque yet fades nicely out to an orange/garnet rim. The nose is chocker block full of aromas ranging from black currant, cassis, dark chocolate and black pepper to smoky wood, cigar/pipe tobacco and cigar box. In the mouth, the palate gets a good grip from big tannins that are a touch drying. An ample body offers rich consistency, solid structure and distinct intensity. A bit of age offers a developed complexity that this wine is currently showing. Sensuous overall and, oh, so enjoyable!
