Rosenblum Cellars  Annette's Reserve  Zinfandel Mike Taylor Very good  2001  $28.00
I recently tasted the 2001 Annette's Reserve Zinfandel produced from fruit sourced from the Rhodes Vineyard. I am rarely disappointed in Rosenblum Zins and this was no exception. The wine has a lovely dark ruby red color that fades to an orange red rim. The nose is full of tantalizing aromas of blackcurrants, cinnamon, clove, black pepper, wood smoke and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is still showing big tannins - possessing a drying astringency - providing it with a solid structure and a full body with plenty of flavors such as currants and cherries. While still showing signs of youth, the wine also possess a developed character. This is a noble Zin offering plenty of drinking enjoyment.
