Ravenswood Dickerson Zinfandel 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Chocolate, red cherries in alcohol and a nice lightly toasted oak top note greet the nose, all bathed in a subtle mint-framing note. This shows only medium-plus body on the palate, with a nice bit of tannin making this rather firm and supporting its core of black earth, spice and black plum skin. This is spicy and quite well balanced, popping on the back end with more tart red fruit. A firm and focused and rather severe example of Zin. 91 points

A very bold, but totally balanced Zinfandel from "the other side of the mountain" in Napa Valley. I'm so accustomed to the great Ravenswood Zins from Sonoma Valley, that I didn't know what to expect, but a great wine maker just knows how to make a great wine! Great flavor with a long, pleasant floral finish.

Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry and cherry, with complicating nuances of dried rose and Asian spices. Sweet, focused red fruit preserve flavors are given strong spine by zesty minerality, picking up an exotic floral past... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2009 Ravenswood Zinfandel Dickerson Vineyard 750ml

This is a strong Zinfandel. It takes over the mouth with a blast of ripe blackberry cherry anise chocolate and spice. What it lacks in subtlety it more than makes up for in sheer power. Wine Enthusiast.
