Heritage Clones Petite Sirah 2004

2004 | Petite Syrah
San Francisco Bay, USA

Secured with synthetic cork, comical amount of sediment. Ink blue in the glass. Ripe mulberry, tart blueberry, blackberry; blackberry pie with heavy crust, dried blackcurrant; amazing.

Oh man…I love me some old school Rosenblum. It’s been years since my last bottle.

They are totally defunct now, this was from the near end of our Rosenblum buying years. I loved their wines, QPR was No. 1.

@Severn Goodwin it was up there for sure. I drank as much as I could get my hands on.

Appellation Series Zinfandel 2004

My buddy, Ash, gave me this many yes ago & suggested i hold it til 2008. I never listened to him (except he did turn me on to Zichichi wines...). Can kind of see the amount of sediment this had - like a pound of soil in the bottle! Still had great, chocolate, anise, black cherry tones & great lasting finish. If you have one of these - keep it for a few more yes! So far beyond my expectations! — 3 years ago

George Hendry Vineyard Zinfandel 1990

This pretty much doesn’t exist anymore. I have two more left and then gone forever. My palate is happy. Plum and cherry. Super heavy and strong. Getting older didn’t hurt this one as it was stored well and decanted for a few hours. — 5 years ago

Old Vine Sonoma County Zinfandel 2013

Got the plow of classic Rosenblum. Color is prefect. Rosy red. Aroma is strange. Maybe mole. Or mole and plum sauce. Flavors are chewy, dense and jammy. Classic Zin. This aged quite well. Balance is fantastic. A winner of a Sonoma county Zin. Great, great deal at Gross Outlet. — a year ago

Harris Kratka Vineyard Zinfandel 2005


A rich but now well balanced Zin in that ripe style that I’d likely not have been too fond of when it was younger. Bottle coated with sediment and oak is prominent in how it’s resolved with plummy berry vanilla notes. Back label says a field blend of Zin Carignane and Petit Sirah, Alexander Valley vineyard, vines cultivated on St. George rootstock grafted onto a 75 year old clone of Zin. — 2 years ago

Paso Robles Zinfandel 2004

Huge fruit still! Really surprising how well the Rosenblum wines are holding up 15+yrs out. This had a great, rich finish. — 5 years ago

Annette's Reserve Redwood Valley Zinfandel 2002

2002; Father's Day 2022
👃 Dried blackberries, dried blueberries, over-ripe black cherry, crushed dark chocolate | 👅 Black cherry & strawberry syrup reduction, over-ripe nectarine skin, dark chocolate sauce, light tar notes, acidity/tannins persists with a long, round finish. Satisfying.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H rest at time of notes.

The end of the line for our Annette's stock, starting life in our cellar as a 4-pack back in Nov. 2005 ($22.50), this has been an enjoyable run.
Paired to homemade chocolate lava cake. 🤤

A quick googling points to a sub AVA of Mendocino…. Too many AVA’s to keep up.
