This is my second vintage tasting of Rosenblum's San Francisco Bay Mourvedre and it is as equally pleasing as the first. The 2003 wine starts off with a dark to opaque ruby core that fades out to a rose colored rim. There is plenty to like in the nose. Aromas of chocolate and strawberries blend well with cinnamon and cracked black pepper. With hints of violets/roses and plums, you'll quickly realize that there's a lot going on in the nose of this wine. In the mouth, the palate is treated to a mellow sweetness up front and smooth tannins with a velvety texture through mid-palate. The ample body offers a solid structure, nice balance and strong intensity. The warmness of this wine is sensuous and distinct and says good-bye with a slow parting.
