Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2006
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.
Very smooth and balanced mix of blackberry, cherry and black currant with a hint of smokiness. Medium to full bodied with a moderate finish.
For a $15 bottle, this was quite good. Plum and black currant aromas, plummier flavors. Drying tannins. Opens up nicely, with pronounced aromas of pencil shavings. More interesting than most at this price point.
I have enjoyed earlier Cabs from Ravenswood but this one is weak and hollow.
A wonderful nose that doesn't translate well in to the mouth. It is has an okay finish. I will recommend for a casual night of wine drinking while preparing your favorite dish.

Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Sonoma and all other wine from Ravenswood are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
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.
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.
Wine Tasting NotesBlending is fun! It is even more fun when the wines that you have to work with are so delicious. This remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon blend was carefully crafted by Joel Peterson and his winemaking team, to be the best Cabernet Sauvignon on the market at this price. Just taste it, you will be convinced. The Vintners Blend Cabernet is an awesome glass of wine at an insane price!
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.
