2006 Rosenblum Abba Vineyards Syrah, Lodi

Picked this 2006 Rosenblum Abba Vineyards Syrah from Lodi up last weekend as part of a club shipment (club price: $20, retail:$25).

I picked up wild blackberries and some woody notes on the nose of this thick, dense Syrah. In the mouth I was hit with black cherries, plums, a touch of heat on the finish along with bubblegum sweetness and black pepper spice.

Only 2,550 cases were made. The wine was aged in French (90%) and American (10%) oak from grapes grown by Phil Abba.

Nicely crafted wine, and for $20 not too bad quality price ratio (QPR).

I guess I lucked out. The World Market up in Redding CA has it for 12.99. Awesome...tastes like one of Rosenblums 25030 dollar Petite Sirah's or Zin blends.

When I'm in the mood for a Zin, I get this one instead...for 13 bucks!

$20 for a bottle of this insipid wine is a scam, try a Rosenblum Merlot 1999, a better option for only ten bucks.
