Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2010 Rosenblum Cellars Paso Robles Zinfandel

Complex fruit drives this 2010 Paso Robles Zinfandel, opening with a heady combination of mulberry, rhubarb and plum. Licorice and hints of violet complement the rich, dark fruit aromas. On the palate, bright acids give lift to fresh raspberry and black cherry flavors, followed by firm tannins that accompany the long finish. The wine has an appealing versatility for food, perfect for almost any pasta dish, whether a creamy Carbonara or a meaty ragù.
