Can anyone out there tell me how the St. Francis zinfandel compares with others in that price range?
St. Francis Zin is very comparable to Rombauer Zin however I would lean towards the St. Francis Zin as you are spending slightly less and getting the same quality.
I am just curious about the above. I drink the wine and I am soon to get a black lab and would like to name him ROMBAUER.
That is a pretty cool name for a dog. Enjoy!
Here's a better answer: Rombauer, Irma von Starkloff 1877-1962. American cookery expert who wrote The Joy of Cooking (1931) and several of its revisions.
Opening with a burst, this wine boasts aromas of blackberry and boysenberry jam. On the palate, rich, juicy fruit loaded with ripe wild berries, plum, fig and black cherry flavors. Supple tannins and smooth oak notes show in the lush, mouth-filling finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include braised short ribs over wild mushroom risotto, pizza, and pork tenderloin.
Pairing for this wine includes pad tai, West Indies spiced lamb kebabs, and New York style cheesecake.
