2006 Rosenblum Cellars Contra Costa County Zinfandel: Smooth, gentle, definitely worthwhile
sept. 6, 2010: greg and i got back from the long labor day weekend after spending a couple of days in bloomington. we stopped by the sahara mart, which we had never been to before, and discovered they have a very nice selection of wine for very decent prices.
we had had a rosenblum cellars maggie's reserve with rob williamson back around new year's eve, and i remembered my dad talking about the contra costa county rosenblum being very good. so we dropped about $20.99 (with a 10-percent 12-bottle case discount) and opened this up pretty soon after we arrived back home.
paired with the leftover brats (andouille and green onion) from friday night, it was a great match -- so gentle and soft, with some blackberry flavors. 14.4 percent alcohol. definitely a wine to get again.
