The Cuvee features aromas of black cherry, blackberry and raspberry, as well as spice and vanilla overtones. Medium-bodied and replete with acidity, this food-friendly wine pairs well with pizza, pasta, barbecue meats and poultry, as well as Italian and Mediterranean style foods.
Shrewd consumers looking for a great bargain should check out the N.V. Vintner's Cuvee. It is loaded with delicious super-ripe berry fruit, displays a soft texture, and a mouthfilling, generous finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. This winery has endeared itself to Zinfandel fans for its luscious, intensely fruity, rich, full-bodied style of winemaking. Interestingly, the owner of Rosenblum Cellars is also a veterinarian, but no dogs are to be found in his current portfolio. Tel. 415-865-7007.
