Very charismatic. Full and balanced. Dense fruit and cracked pepper. Warm finish. Sits on the back of the tongue.

Contra Costa County Red Table Wine 2020

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2020 Red Wine (Contra Costa County) is notable because of its complexity. Nothing in particular stands out, all the elements are so harmoniously put together. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and menthol are some of the notes that open with a bit of air, but more than anything, I admire the energy and delineation leading into a finish of real substance. The blend is 65% Carignane and 35% Mataro. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2023) — 7 days ago

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.
