Editorial Reviews for Ravenswood California Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel
Jammy fruits on the nose with lots of plum and crushed berry tones with a toffeed edge and notes of cedar and slate in the back ground. Big and soft with drying tannins and adequate acidity. A bit dull though there are sweet roasted strawberry tones accented with a hint of black pepper. A bit short as well. 83pts
This Old Vine Zinfandel had a deep ruby red color. The nose was dominated by plums, strawberry jam, blackcurrant jam and earth. The wine had a label listed ABV of 14.5%. Unfortunately, I could smell the alcohol, too. On the palate, Old Vine Zinfandel was very fruit-forward. There were some minerals and a decent acidity, too. The wine had a small/medium body and mellow tannins. Ravenswood's Old Vine Zinfandel had a finish of medium length. Tasting notes from Vino in Love: http://vinoinlove.com
Strong and robust with cherry, cinnamon, and spicy pepper on the nose. Pomegranate flavors, structured tannins well placed. Just like Joel says, "no wimpy wines", and so far I agree.
A very mellow and balanced wine. Have had $40 bottles of wine that weren't half as good.
Very smooth, fantastic flavor and it stands well on its own.
Great flavor and on of my favorite "Old Vine" Zin's. For the price, its unbeatable.
hey, I grabbed a footlong meatball marinara sub from Subway, and stopped by Kroger and saw this on sale for $5.69? (half price!) This wine married with that sub for life! A quality zin, ready to drink, this wine sang a beautiful tune on the back of my throat.
Happy with this Zin blend. I know I enjoy Ravenswood and I'm a sucker for blended anything, so... in the bag it went. Beautiful plum color. Thick, cloying nose. Yes, ok to toffee and jam, per the label. Yes, I'll agree with Stanleygan on the Meatball sub rec. It makes me think of deep red sauce and meat. Mmmmmm... The food pairing I made undoubtably didn't do it justice, but the wine was very nice, just the same, with my *&#$^% (too embarrassed to claim what I had it with) and also alone. Enjoy!!
External Reviews for Ravenswood California Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel
You'll get taken over by aromas and flavors of black cherries, currant, clove and cocoa, with soft, full tannins and balanced acidity for an achingly long and oh-so-pleasant finish.
This intense Lodi Old Wine Zinfandel, made from low-yielding vines, bursts with concentrated sweet plum, blueberry and spice flavors.
Deep ruby with a bright rim. High-toned redcurrant and cherry aromas are complemented by tobacco and cocoa powder. Tangy, finely etched red berry flavors take a plummy turn and become sweeter with air. Warm cherry and plum preserve qualities linger nicely on the sappy, slightly spirity finish.
Deep ruby. Jammy raspberry and blackberry on the nose, with notes of fresh rose and baking spices adding complexity. Sappy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like intensity and depth but are also enlivened by juicy acidity. Impressively fresh, focused zinfandel with excellent finishing lift and thrust, leaving behind floral pastilles and smoky minerals.
Bright ruby. Deep dark berry and cola aromas are complicated by cured tobacco and baking spices. Fleshy and gently sweet, with good depth and sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors. Fresh, straightforward and refreshingly brisk, with good finishing lift and cut.
Thick, rich, concentrated blueberry fruit, and bright, lively berry flavors hinting at raspberry give this wine that classic robust fruit of Zinfandel. Twelve months' maturation in a combination of new and old French oak barrels has rounded and fattened the wine while contributing notes of vanillin and subtle spice. Deliciously drinkable young for its precocious, soft, spicy berry fruit and lush texture.
Shows ripe plum and licorice aromas, with lively, slightly untamed dried cherry, spice and blueberry flavors. Drink now.
You’ll get taken over by aromas and flavors of black cherries, currants, clove, and cocoa, with soft, full tannins and balanced acidity for an achingly long and oh-so-pleasant finish. Unbelievable with lasagna, grilled pepper steak, or stew.
