Winery Notes: “Medium-dark to dark ruby. Like our 2019 Saitone, on the darker side for a Zin in this vintage. A heavenly nose of cherry, raspberry, and blood orange (zinberry!) overwhelms the senses. Aromatically, stunning. The wine enters medium-full to full-bodied with abundant red fruit flavors that nearly conceal the typical fine-grained youthful tannins of this site. Compared to the 2018, a richer, more fruit-forward Zinfandel but still with exceptional balance. I’ve been making Rossi Ranch Zinfandel since 1993. I cannot recall one that has impressed me more. Enjoy from release through 2030.”
Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points : “The 2019 Zinfandel Rossi Ranch is lifted with perfume and floral character, with candied red plum, violets, and five-spice. Approachable and juicy up front, its structure emerges and fills out the finish with refreshing acidity. Hold this a year or two and drink over the following 10 years. Drink: 2023-2034.”
Wine Spectator 95 Points: “Vibrant and expressive, with compelling cherry and raspberry flavors laced with spice, cinnamon, and orange zest. Builds richness and texture toward refined, briary tannins.”
Vinous 94 Points: The 2019 Zinfandel Rossi Ranch is a powerhouse. Creamy, ample, and explosive, the Rossi shows the opulence of a warm site in a warm year. Red fruit, sweet pipe tobacco, dried herbs and mint all build effortlessly in the glass. In 2019, the Rossi Zinfandel is not exactly subtle, but it sure is delicious. (AG)
