GDP's California Zinfandels

13. Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Old Hill (2009)

« Prev Next » 13 of 77
A bit oaky but at the same time quite complex on the nose, with a marine quality here adding freshness to the blueberry and raspberry fruit, all topped with deep and complex oily nuttiness. On entry this is cool and compressed, showing fine structure, taut with lovely grape skin and wild plum fruit full of spicy inner mouth perfumes, and streaked with nice dark coffee and mineral accents on the long, slightly tough peppery finish. A powerful wine that's a little tough today but should blossom with just a bit more time in the cellar. 92 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
