Not very dark for zin. Raspberry. Chewy, ripe and youthful wine. Great notes of blueberry, raspberry, some vanilla and decent tannins. Nice Zin for the money

Ruby with a light brown edge. Very lightly aromatic, some sense of grass and fruit tree. Flavors of cherry and spice, but with a thin and slightly tannic finish. Stick with 7 deadly zins for an interesting zinfandel. Pairings: Big flavors like bbq or hamburger. Maybe a steak.

Typical over rated Ravenswood Zin. Over the past 30 years as a Zin snob, I think that I've only had 2-3 bottles of Ravenswood Zin that I thought were great. At best the rest were so-so. When I visited their tasting room about 4-5 years ago I bought 6 bottles of 2004 Ravenswood Zins, one from each of their different premium vineyards. I wanted to give them a fair shot. This is the first one I've opened - April, 2011. What's wrong with it? Thin, watery, bitter, minimal fruit, too much tannin and acid, just slightly softer than when I bought it. What's good? A nice aftertaste, when my cheeks disconnect! I confess, I'm a fan of fruit bomb Zins in the heroic mold! Wines that require substantial wrist muscle strength to lift the glass. It used to be the "3 Rs", Ridge, Ravenswood, Rosenblum. From the mid 90s on it's been Rosenblum, Rosenblum, Rosenblum - until sadly they changed hands. Now it's Rockwall (owned by the Rosenblum) and their cohorts for real Zins! Chas.

A zin that America loves, the Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel drinks easily and exhibits excellent ripe raspberry flavors; soft on the palate and easy on the pocketbook.

Winemaker's Notes:

5252131

Tasting Notes:

Blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane Huge, jammy, inky, slightly porty aromas infused with black pepper, vanilla and hints of tar, smoke and coffee blend. A very broad, intense wine with huge fruit – lots of those luscious Dry Creek bing cherry and sweet plum characters.
