Rock Wall Winery Jesse’s Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

$24.99 (PA tax not included)

91 Points. From “Zin master” Kent Rosenbaum, Jesse’s Vineyard Zinfandel is big and unapologetically ripe. Cherry pie and toasty caramel aromas lead to layered black raspberry, sage and spicy cinnamon flavors. Jesse is the 93 year old farmer who tends these 124 year old vines!

Description

After building Rosenblum Winery from a 400- to a 250,000-case producer, Founder/Winemaker Kent Rosenblum sold the winery in 2008. He then started up Rock Wall, with daughter, Shauna as winemaker. “We wanted to go back to a family business that focused on great wines and having a good time,” says Kent.

For Kent, making wine has always been about a willingness to explore viticultural regions and experiment with winemaking techniques, which is the legacy he has passed on to his daughter. Today, Shauna heads up the cellar at the 30,000-case family venture, with Kent as CEO. A family affair, Rock Wall is about having fun, while making the best wines from the best regions and sharing the experience with others. As Kent always says, “Never underestimate the value of a little fun.
