Joel Peterson, who many consider to be one of California's most talented Winemakers, founded Ravenswood with the idea of making bold wines with rich flavors. His famous logo with the "Don't" symbol over the words "Wimpy Wines" tells the story. And from his single vineyard wines to his AVA wines down to his Vintner's Blend series the mission is clear; big flavor, ripe forward fruit and lush appeal. This Zin is sourced from old vine vineyards with low yields and densely concentrated berries. It makes carrying out the Ravenswood mission all that much easier. This 2010 was aged 12 months in French oak barrels. It's zesty and bright with lush berry notes, lively spice and good balancing acidity. A steal at this price.
VITAL STATS• Robust, mouthwatering, spicy• What a true Zin is meant to be• Ripe raspberry, cherry, blueberryWHAT YOU'RE IN FORNot a poser Zin, but a real one. Big, bold, unapologetic. This 2010 rendition leads the charge with tantalizing aromas of black cherry, raspberries, and blueberries along with hints of oak. It then gets really serious with a cascade of fruit flavors, oh-so-flexible tannins, and a long, fruit-forward finish you're not going to forget very easily.FOOD MATCHUPSA mega plate of red-sauce pasta or barbecued pork ribs - WineryJUST THE FACTSWhere It's From: CaliforniaAging: 12 months in 100% French Oak, 25% newSkin Contact: 10-15 daysTotal Acidity: 5.7g/LpH: 3.77Alcohol: 13.5%
The 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.
