Rombauer does what they do best, and this recent vintage of Zin proves that in spades. This bottle packs a powerful punch of ripe red and black decadence, with subtle hints of clove and herbaceous mint that provide a dense backdrop for all that fruit. Layers of candied plum and vanilla deliver an expressive and expansive finish that will stay on your palate for days… If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
After making wine for more than 30 years in the Napa Valley, the late Koerner Rombauer quietly established himself as an industry veteran. The small town farm boy from Southern California followed his first passion, flying, into the California Air National Guard. In 1972, after an almost 20-year career as a pilot, Koerner moved his wife, kids, two horses and five dogs to the Napa Valley. The small agricultural community reminded him of the clean, safe town in which he grew up. Koerner started with 40 hilltop acres just outside of St Helena, but today, the Rombauers own prime vineyards in some of the finest pockets of the Napa Valley, including the sites in Stags Leap, Atlas Peak, St. Helena and Calistoga. The wines have a cult following - give them a taste and you'll see why.
