Food Pairings for Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma
Seemed average, sugary.
Bold, fruity, big vanilla oak nose fairly balanced, but overpowering
ok taste. good price.
Consistently one of my go to wines. Always pleasing. Luscious rich, full, spicy flavor.
Very good Zin for the price
This was wine was a pleasant surprise. Oak suffused dark red fruits. Some mention peppers but that wasn't evident, nor was it too sweet for my taste (as many wines are becoming) and I consume very little sugar, generally. The wine (a gift, so now I must locate a retailer) was 84% Z, 8% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah, and 2% mixed blacks(?). From a little research I see that '07 bottles can be slightly different blends. I like to hunt down inexpensive fruity, full bodied reds with character. This wine satisfies the first three requirements, and I'm hopeful to achieve a flush.
Tried Ravenwood Zin Vintners Blend 07 today. First time for this winery too. I was less impressed than expected. I had heard fairly good things about this winery. A little young tasting. Mostly plum flavors and a hint of peppery. The flavors have not melded well. I'm not sure if this is due to age, or process.
External Reviews for Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma
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 well-structured wine with charming, youthful fruit. The wine has spicy, ripe raspberry aromas and flavors of black cherry, mint and vanilla. It finishes crisp and clean.
Chewy Zin, with concentrated dried wild berry, dried raspberry and strawberry jam flavors. Pretty vanilla tones linger, along with modest tannins and a slight metallic note. Good value from a Zinfandel specialist. Drink now through 2006.
A solid wine, with a firm texture and lots of plum and raspberry aromas and flavors. Hints at vanilla and turns a mite tannic on the finish, so probably best to drink after 1993.
Medium ruby; pleasant, floral, herbal, briary, toasty, raspberry fruit aroma with a hint of cigar-box; medium-full body; fairly big, rich, jammy, plummy, tarrish, high-extract flavors with good depth; lingering aftertaste. Above-average quality. Highly recommended.
Straightforward, balanced and generous in flavor, echoing cherry and toast on a moderately long finish. Easy to approach but firm enough in texture to complement serious food.
