Food Pairings for Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma
Very boring wine. Was not able to pick up any particular flavors ...
Fruit forward with red berry and plum. Some oaky notes in the mix as well. Firm tannins. This wine was a bit hot with the alcohol at times. Not bad at all but could stand to gain a little complexity in my opinion.
Fruits and raisins in the nose and early mouth, opens up a bit later, but never very complex.
Raisin and fig aroma with a taste of wonderfully smooth oak on the tongue. Dry but not mouth-drying. Has a fairly short finish. Had no trouble finishing this bottle!!
Prunes/dried fruit were the main flavors/bouquet. Medium acidity and light-medium body. Just ok.
Ravenswood 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel – Napa Valley – Lamarr: Nose: No where near as oaky as the Plungerhead, fruity nose (can’t tell if it’s blackberry or plum), Hector, being the smart-ass he is suggests “Bug-killer…insecticide!”, On the palate: Very jammy, like biting into a ripe fruit, full-bodied, Finish: strong, medium lasting, high tannins, Hector: Not as good as Plungerhead (Lamarr: I just think it’s different (kind of like working in the public school system where you can’t say anyone is stupid, just different), Marcus Aurelius: bite as you swallow it, Hector: the Raven to Wood ratio is slightly off. Lamarr: high B (definitely close to a B+, I’m thinking an 86.6, may get again in a rush/on a budget/for Wade, Note: may knock the Petite from last night down to an 85). Hector: B, could have been better (K-Mart: too dry!) Marcus Aurelius: I’d give it a B, little too strong in the nose, too hot
One of our house wines. We buy the one uder $10. Works really well with pancetta and artichoke pasta, or pizza.
External Reviews for Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma
76% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignane, 8% Mixed BlacksRipe berry fruit in the nose follows concentrated flavors of blackberry and black cherry. A varietally focused Zinfandel with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla in the finish, this wine offers layers of flavor, a succulent center, balanced acids and structural tannins.
Bright, flashy, ripe raspberry, blackberry and vanilla flavors are wrapped around a soft sweet fruit core highlighted by scents of cinnamon.
Wine Tasting NotesThe Vintners Blend has a rich, somewhat soft, moderately complex, spicy, ripe, raspberry aroma. The flavors are those of black cherries, mint and vanilla with a sturdy, slightly astringent finish. The freshness and youth that we strive for in the Vintners Blend allows it to be released with slightly less barrel and bottle age. We pass our economic savings on to the consumer who will find these forceful but friendly wines to be a wonderful complement to pasta, poultry, red meats and other highly-flavored dishes.
This is Ravenswood's introductory Zinfandel. A full-bodied red with black berry fruit, cherries, and pepper aromas. If you like this Zin, try the rest of their wines: you'll immediately see the family resemblance.
Ravenswood Zinfandel 2006 Napa and all other wine from Ravenswood are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
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.
Austere with herbal notes that work into core of berry flavors followed by dry earthy tannins which appear on the finish.
