External Reviews for Ravenswood Cabernet
Here's a value in an everyday Cab. It's balanced, dry and full-bodied, with ripe, dusty tannins, a kiss of toast oak, and good currant, plum and blackberry flavors. Earns an extra point for the long finish.
Sweet chocolate and blackberry flavors make for charming window dressing, supported by an underlying herbal quality and gutsy tannins. Drink now.
Riper and plusher than you might think at this price, with blackberry flavors that are well oaked. This is a fairly tannic wine, and it leaves the palate with a scour of astringency, but the fruity concentration makes it a value.
Winemaker Joel Peterson is famous for not only his skill at crafting fine wines, but also his ability to source fruit from outstanding vineyards. The quality of fruit in this wine is striking, especially on the palate. Dark currant, raspberry and a zippy black cherry edge deliver surprising structure and balance at this price range. A medium-bodied Cabernet with some real character, and a tasty bargain.
