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

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.

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.

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.
