Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2006
Decent, typical californian Cabernet.
Recommended somewhere along the line as a nice under $10 cab. And I agree.
Ok, not great
This wine is not dark nor rich with no background notes of black cherry and green pepper. Boring, bland tannins and not-so-subtle oak contribute off-balanced blandness, and the barely existent finish disappears at the exact time you would expect.
Not a bad experience until about one second into the finish when everything stopped. I feel robbed. But for less than $15 it's not much of a crime.
Full bodied and dry. Well balanced with subtle tannins. Noted hints of blackberry, cherry, and slight oak with and moderately long finish. Good everyday wine.
External Reviews for Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Soft tannins and subtle oak contribute well-balanced roundness, and the finish lingers considerably longer than you might expect. If Cabernet is Californias luxury wine, this one is arguably the best bargain going.
Deep ruby color, expressive aromas of smoky cherry, blackcurrant and baking spices. Suave dark berry flavors show liqueur-like depth and intensity, with dusty tannins adding shape and grip and carrying through the finish.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 8% Syrah, 6% Malbec, 1% Cabernet FrancThe 2004 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully balanced with power and elegance. Fragrant cassis, black currant, cherries and spice tones dominate the complex aroma. Palate tastes of ripe cherries and vanilla from the French oak that is never cloying or heavy. The finish is bright, moderately tannic and very refined. The spice from the Cabernet Franc and the mid-body weight from the Merlot are apparent and make this wine a beautifully confluent experience. It will age nicely for ten to twelve years and will be quite enjoyable as it moves into adolescence for four to six years.
