This particular wine has a nice deep ruby color in the glass, and the nose exhibits aromas of leather, blackberry, plum and black cherry, and just the faintest hint of baking spice. The taste is very fruit forward, a very "jammy" sort of Zin, with flavors of ripe plum, cherries, and blackberries, giving way to some fresh herbs, cedar and spice notes midpalate. The tannins are quite well developed, leading to a nice, tight dry finish.

Bold, fruity, big vanilla oak nose fairly balanced, but overpowering

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.

Robust red, brimming with mouthwatering flavors of spicy ripe raspberry, cherry and boysenberry.

This blend is rich, yet soft, with complexity, and a spicy, ripe raspberry aroma. With flavors of black cherries, mint and vanilla, this Zinfandel has a sturdy and slightly astrigent finish.

Not a poser Zin, but a real one. Big, bold, unapologetic. This 2011 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. - WineryAging: 10 months in 100% French Oak, 35% newTotal Acidity: 6.6g/LpH: 3.50Alcohol: 13.5%

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.
