Ravenswood Zinfandel Napa Valley Dickerson 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine Review Rated 94 Much riper in this vintage than the typical Dickerson bottling has been but deeper because of it, the wine smells of concentrated berries with a slight dried fruit quality and also picks up a loamy soil complexity, hints of sarsaparilla and a creamy oak overlay. It comes equipped with an extra measure of fullness on the palate and flirts with a late harvest notes but never gives in thus insuring that it will work with savory meats. It is more intense than the Teldeschi bottling but less classic. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 91-93 Ruby-red. Spicy aromas of red berries, cherry, cracked pepper, mace and violet. Fresh and clean, with energetic red fruit flavors braced by zesty minerality. Picks up dusty tannins with air and finishes with very good grip and energy.
