Ravenswood Vintners Blend Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Aged in French oak for 12 months, the Vintner's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon over delivers big time. Black currant, blackberry and cassis fruit flavors contribute to a satisfying bouquet and a rich mouthfeel. Tannins are there but soft and well-integrated. A great value, this will pair well with roasted or grilled meat dishes, as well as many pastas and cheeses.

Herersquo;s a value in an everyday Cab. Itrsquo;s balanced, dry and full-bodied, with ripe, dusty tannins, a kiss of toast oak, and good currant, plum and blackberry flavors. Earns an extra point for the long finish.
Sweet chocolate and blackberry flavors make for charming window dressing, supported by an underlying herbal quality and gutsy tannins. Drink now.

Winemaker Joel Peterson is famous for not only his skill at crafting fine wines, but also his ability to source fruit from outstanding vineyards. The quality of fruit in this wine is striking, especially on the palate. Dark currant, raspberry and a zippy black cherry edge deliver surprising structure and balance at this price range. A medium-bodied Cabernet with some real character, and a tasty bargain.
