Fruit forward with red berry and plum. Some oaky notes in the mix as well. Firm tannins. This wine was a bit hot with the alcohol at times. Not bad at all but could stand to gain a little complexity in my opinion.

Raisin and fig aroma with a taste of wonderfully smooth oak on the tongue. Dry but not mouth-drying. Has a fairly short finish. Had no trouble finishing this bottle!!

Ravenswood 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel – Napa Valley – Lamarr: Nose: No where near as oaky as the Plungerhead, fruity nose (can’t tell if it’s blackberry or plum), Hector, being the smart-ass he is suggests “Bug-killer…insecticide!”, On the palate: Very jammy, like biting into a ripe fruit, full-bodied, Finish: strong, medium lasting, high tannins, Hector: Not as good as Plungerhead (Lamarr: I just think it’s different (kind of like working in the public school system where you can’t say anyone is stupid, just different), Marcus Aurelius: bite as you swallow it, Hector: the Raven to Wood ratio is slightly off. Lamarr: high B (definitely close to a B+, I’m thinking an 86.6, may get again in a rush/on a budget/for Wade, Note: may knock the Petite from last night down to an 85). Hector: B, could have been better (K-Mart: too dry!) Marcus Aurelius: I’d give it a B, little too strong in the nose, too hot

One of our house wines. We buy the one uder $10. Works really well with pancetta and artichoke pasta, or pizza.

An intense bouquet and a deep red colour. It begins intensely peppery and transitions into a smooth and fruity finish. Very nice. I had this on its own.

This is Ravenswood's introductory Zinfandel. A full-bodied red with black berry fruit, cherries, and pepper aromas. If you like this Zin, try the rest of their wines: you'll immediately see the family resemblance.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Vintners Blend has a rich, somewhat soft, moderately complex, spicy, ripe, raspberry aroma. The flavors are those of black cherries, mint and vanilla with a sturdy, slightly astringent finish. The freshness and youth that we strive for in the Vintners Blend allows it to be released with slightly less barrel and bottle age. We pass our economic savings on to the consumer who will find these forceful but friendly wines to be a wonderful complement to pasta, poultry, red meats and other highly-flavored dishes.

A zin that America loves, the Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel drinks easily and exhibits excellent ripe raspberry flavors; soft on the palate and easy on the pocketbook.
