I like this Zin for the price, very fruity and nice spice and actually think the 2012 is a little better! Read more

On the sour side initially, but improved after being allowed to breathe, an OK wine. Read more

On the lower side for Ravenwood...a nice example of what Zinfadel's should be like...albeit in the $6 range. I will seek it out and keep it around for a 'House Zinfadel'...

Good wine at this price point. Let it sit for 30 minutes before tasting. Peppery aroma with a hint of berry.

Not a poser Zin, but a real one. Big, bold, unapologetic. This 2011 rendition leads the charge with tantalizing aromas of black cherry, raspberries, and blueberries along with hints of oak. It then gets really serious with a cascade of fruit flavors, oh-so-flexible tannins, and a long, fruit-forward finish you're not going to forget very easily. - WineryAging: 10 months in 100% French Oak, 35% newTotal Acidity: 6.6g/LpH: 3.50Alcohol: 13.5%


Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Connoisseurs' Guide: Fairly intense and not lacking for ripeness but showing nary a trace of chocolaty excess and convincingly keyed on very well-focused, blackberry fruit, the Belloni bottling is full and fleshy with a nice sense of youthful buoyancy and an ever so slightly lighter step than typical Ravenswood workings. That is not to say that it wants for richness or depth, and it has the structured feel of a wine sure to age famously. Tuck it away for three to five years and match it up with hearty pastas bathed in a meaty Bolognese sauce. (Jan 2014)
