Editorial Reviews for Ravenswood Barrica Sonoma Valley Zinfandel
Smokey and decidedly brairy with a sandy soil tone and nice mulberry and blackberry fruit accented with some light vanilla and gentle, not toasty spicy. Nicely resolved in the mouth with a smooth feeling that gains a fine veneer of powdery tannins. The fruit it bright and edgy, supported by a solid base of acidity. the wine gains some nice lightly spice notes on the back end with a hint of eggshell and some vanilla gaining strength leading into the finish. There's a nice earthy/cocoa overtone tot he fruit and that become a bit more pronounced on the finish. There's also a creeping herbal hint here that shows up early on the nose and late on the palate. This is a rather restrained Zin with a gentle, elegant feel. A wine that creeps on you instead of knocking you out. 89pts

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 91-93 Bright red. Powerfully scented, spicy bouquet of raspberry, boysenberry, dried flowers, nutmeg and clove. Deeply flavored but nicely focused, offering lively red and dark fruit flavors, dusty tannins and a suave floral pastille quality. Finishes spicy and quite long. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine Review Rated 90 Leaning a bit towards the very ripe end of the Zinfandel spectrum but endowed with a fair measure of blackberry fruit tinged with notions of wildflowers and caramel, this full-bodied wine comes with a supple entry and a tannic backend while delivering good fruit at its heart. It dries a touch and shows an edge of acidity to its finish, and a few years of age would seem the best course in seeing this one to its best. Wine Tasting Notes The Barricia is likely the most perfumed wine of the vineyard designates, eliciting ethereal qualities on the nose. It will strike lovers of claret-style wines with its Cabernet-like structure and form. Possessing a wow of spice and having characters of blackberry and cassis, this wine will bring out the best flavors of your typical California cuisine - grilled chicken, smoked barbeque and other fresh and organic foods. With a long, firm finish that assures a vital future for this wine.
