GDP's California Zinfandels

71. Ravenswood Zinfandel Alexander Valley Big River (2009)

« Prev Next » 71 of 77
A bit oily, with notes of redwood, dark Brambly fruit and dark, roasted coffee-toned fruit on the nose. Soft and broad and slightly sweet on entry. This is a touch disjointed, with a noticeable streak of wood tannins obvious on the palate lending a dry, firm texture but leading to a bit of hollowness on the mid-palate. There’s plenty of red plummy fruit here, but this is a touch rustic, finishes with more wood tannin and spicy raspberry fruit. 86 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.
