Stark Sips: 2009 Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Maggie’s Reserve ($45, 95 pts.)

If you like your fruit forward, this Rosenblum Zinfandel is the one. I particularly like the spice on the finish.

2009 Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Maggie’s Reserve

Ripe cherry bomb. Grapes from the Sonoma Mountain AVA. This one’s a racy bugger.

If you like your fruit forward, this is the one. I particularly like the spice on the finish.

Sure, pair it with some zingy ribs (how cliche) or, better still, sip it sans food while hanging out on the deck. Also note that this bottle is the perfect example of balance being more important than alcohol levels.

One of my favorite Zins in recent memory.
