Elder berry on the nose and pallet. Not much else to speak of. But a decent little wine. Read more
A reasonable, tannic wine without the strong fruit that comes with a high end Zinfandel. Drinkable and good value, but somewhat dull. Read more
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Food Pairings for Ravenswood Napa Zinfandel
Well, this wine had a lot of the "zips" and "zings" that I think a zinfandel should have, but strangely enough, they seemed to be in all the wrong places, and seemed to crash into each other, rather than flow with one another. so it just came out all wrong for me. That seems odd beings that it is a blend, and could be crafted in order for the different components to work together better Maybe since this is Ravenswood entry level wine with several higher options, they're just displaying a little bit of that zinfandel magic, but in way that will not fully satisfy (I wasn't satisfied, anyway), in order to prod people on to other levels.

External Reviews for Ravenswood Napa Zinfandel
A solid wine, with a firm texture and lots of plum and raspberry aromas and flavors. Hints at vanilla and turns a mite tannic on the finish, so probably best to drink after 1993.
A well-structured wine with charming, youthful fruit. The wine has spicy, ripe raspberry aromas and flavors of black cherry, mint and vanilla. It finishes crisp and clean.
Chewy Zin, with concentrated dried wild berry, dried raspberry and strawberry jam flavors. Pretty vanilla tones linger, along with modest tannins and a slight metallic note. Good value from a Zinfandel specialist. Drink now through 2006.
Straightforward, balanced and generous in flavor, echoing cherry and toast on a moderately long finish. Easy to approach but firm enough in texture to complement serious food.
A gutsy wine with fruit sourced from notable vineyards throughout the valley, this Old Vine Zinfandel is expressive with notes of warm spice and vanilla. Powerful, full-bodied raspberry and blackberry flavors with structured tannins.
Medium red. Fresh redcurrant and strawberry aromas are lightly kissed by smoky herbs. Silky and fine, with bright red fruit and herb flavors, smooth tannins and a persistent raspberry note on the finish. Pretty impressive for the money, and there are 6 million bottles of this. Irsquo;ve bought this at gas stations! Peterson notes that it was fermented completely with native yeasts.
Deep ruby. Black raspberry, cherry and licorice aromas, with a whiff of dried flowers. A fresh midweight, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Turns more tangy on the finish, which leaves brisk berry and cherry skin notes behind.
Pleasing 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
