90pts Wilfred Wong
The 2018 Rombauer Vineyards El Dorado Zinfandel takes a position on high-octane Zins and reveals a hefty wine with excellent balance. There is no shyness here. This wine gushes forward with big-styled berries and a full-bodied personality. Drink this with a slice of deep dish, meat-topped pizza. (Tasted: August 13, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
This wine is ruby red with a bright hue, with aromas of floral raspberry, ripe blackberry, and briar notes. The aromas are echoed on the palate along with expansive and dense flavors of baking spices, vanilla, and dried florals. The ripe tannins frame the palate and provide a balanced texture to give the wine structure and roundness.
Blend: 90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah
