4.5 stars "Color: bright; Aromas: mineral, spicy, tree fruit; Sweetness: dry; Finish: persistent; This is stunning. Much of Rosenblum's young zins wines are difficult to access - and are pruney and concentrated with lots of vanilla. But this 10 year old zin - was delightful - rich black cherry, but not a "heavy" wine. It sparkled with the cherry and spice and a richness (from the vanilla but not an "over" vanilla flavor). So we can drink these zins well aged -not young like most." Best 2007-
