Editorial Reviews for Ravenswood Napa Zin
Classic aromatics of peppery, briary spice and smoke that help to add definition to the wild blackberry fruit tones. In the mouth this sneakily gives the impression of being rather modestly scaled though it's bursting with pure, ripe fruit. the balance is remarkably fine lending belying the wines true size. Perfectly ripe and in a rather spicy style that is drinking well today 91pts.
A light and fruity zinfandel that is quite enjoyable.
tastes like it should cost half the price.
Fairly closed nose. Acidic and hot. This wine is ok with something starchy but isn't really my taste without food.
Rich red and black berry nose. Nice tinge of pepper woven throughout. Juicy, jammy, big and nice. - Blind tasted at Schreiner's Winers zin tasting 9/18/10
Bright and fruity with nice spice and oak. Very pleasant value Zinfandel. Crowd pleaser.
lots of mushrooms on the nose, zippy acidity and cranberry flavor, not much else in the way of fruit. Medium body and dry. Oh, and LOTS of alcohol...15%!
Lots of alcohol. Vintner's blend is better.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine ReviewRated 95With lots and lots of well-defined, optimally ripened blackberry and stone fruit notes leading the way in both its very deep, full-scaled aromas and wonderfully well-extracted flavors, this year's Teldeschi hits all the right varietal marks. It is at once endowed with zesty acidity and palpable tannins, yet both of those pieces of the puzzle are appropriately buffered by plenty of real fruit at its very heart. The wine's obvious richness may tempt some into early drinking, but this one is bound to get better and better if allowed three to five years in bottle.Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewRated 91-92Saturated purple. Explosively aromatic nose features powerful blackberry, candied plum and fruitcake notes and an exotic Asian spice element. Not at all heavy, though, with the palate showing impressively energetic red and dark berry flavors, molten tannins and a taut, youthful quality on the back. According to Peterson, "this is the best fruit out of Dry Creek Valley."
76% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignane, 8% Mixed BlacksRipe berry fruit in the nose follows concentrated flavors of blackberry and black cherry. A varietally focused Zinfandel with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla in the finish, this wine offers layers of flavor, a succulent center, balanced acids and structural tannins.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewMedium red. Primal and grapey on the nose, with fresh raspberry and blackberry scents complicated by pepper and dried flowers. A suggestion of espresso adds depth to energetic red and dark fruit flavors. Silky tannins frame lush red berry compote flavors on the supple finish. As youthful as this is, it's delicious right now.Wine Tasting NotesPleasing bright, ripe plum flavors with mouth-watering acidity and fine tannin structure followed by a racy, lingering finish that tastes of raspberries, cloves, cardamom and vanilla
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewMedium red. Fresh, spicy aromas of energetic raspberry and redcurrant, cured tobacco and pungent herbs. Crisp and nicely focused, with pure red berry flavors, medium weight and a lightly chewy texture. The bright, firm finish shows good depth and length.Wine Tasting NotesBright, flashy, ripe raspberry, blackberry and vanilla flavors are wrapped around a soft sweet fruit core highlighted by scents of cinnamon.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewDeep red. Dusty minerals accent bright redcurrant and wild strawberry on the nose. Zesty, sharply focused and pure, with bright red fruit and blood orange flavors firmed by crisp tannins. The clean, brisk finish shows sneaky persistence.
Sattes Rubin mit leuchtender Mitte. Kirschen und Weinbeeren in der typischen Nase, feine Nussschokolade dahinter. Samtiger Gaumen mit viel Frucht und gutem Schmelz, runde Tannine und marmeladiges Extrakt, Kirschenkompott und getrocknete Birnen, verführerische Fülle bis am Schluss.
