Ravenswood Lodi Zinfandel 2007
Score: N/A Tasting Notes: Low-yielding vineyards and sandy loam soil result in ample layers of sweet plum and blueberry fruit. Notes of vanilla, cocoa, and spice linger on the finish in this wine with complexity and well-balanced acidity. Dense and supple, this Zinfandel is great on its own or accompanied with food. Drink now or in three to five years. Web Site: Click Here
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Ravenswood Lodi Zinfandel
Chewy and ripe, with dried raspberry, vanilla and ripe plum flavors that finish with firm tannin, lively acidity and a peppery note. Drink now through 2006.
Good medium ruby. Slightly porty, wild aromas of blueberry, plum, game and menthol. Then sweet in the middle palate, with black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors showing a faintly medicinal quality. Finishes with substantial, slightly drying tannins.
Shows ripe plum and licorice aromas, with lively, slightly untamed dried cherry, spice and blueberry flavors. Drink now.
Ripe and alcoholic, with dried currant, spice, plum and dried raspberry flavors, picking up lead pencil and modest tannin on the finish. Drink now through 2005.
Good bright red-ruby. Superripe aromas of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and menthol. Juicy and fresh, with sweet berry and spice flavors and good cut. From vines picked before the early September heat wave.
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.
A big bruiser with youthful wild berry, sage and earth flavors and hefty tannins. Has the jamminess and sharp acids of a young wine. Drink with rich meats, tomato sauce and olive oil.
