Course Pairing / Description Wine

This winning wine has flavors that explode from the glass: lemon, lime and kiwi, followed by ruby grapefruit and tangerine. The long, crisp finish makes it outstanding for simply sipping or enjoying with some grilled lime scallops. Or try it paired with some steamed green beans sprinkled with minced summer savory."
St. Suprey Sauvignon Blanc

Redemption Zinfandel is sourced solely from the Dry Creek Appellation and displays the classic aromas of ripe blueberries and spice. Blackberries fill the palate supported with a black pepper backbone. The wine finishes with oak nuances and integrated acid balance. This is a medium bodied wine with deep ruby color and a projected cellar life of 5-9 years.
Redemption Zin 2004 Alexander Valley

Rombauer Vineyards' 2003 Zinfandel captures the essence of California Zinfandel with this ripe, fruit driven wine. It is filled with aromas of boysenberries, raspberries and wild berries. The wine is loaded with flavors of ripe, zesty wild berry and blackberry jam that picks up spicy, peppery notes. It finishes with a fantastic burst of fruit and concentrated berry flavors. Drink now or let age for 2-4 years." -
Rombauer Zinfandel

Lovely, bright jammy cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of black pepper and spice are the main focus of this wine. It is a very friendly, drinkable, zesty Zinfandel that goes well with pasta, barbecue meats, poultry, and Italian and Mediterranean foods.

Rosenblum "Annette Reserve" Zinfandel

This rich, full wine exhibits the signature spicy earth tones that make Paso Robles Zinfandel so excellent. Combining two vineyards from both sides of the Salinas River contribute to the overall charm and complexity. In this wine you will discover flavors of rich cherry, black raspberry a touch of chocolate truffles and aromas of anise.
