USA, Zinfandel, Red Blend, Ravenswood, Vintner’s Blend, California, 2009

Past vintages were Zinfandel red bends with Petite Sirah, Carignane, etc. I can’t find the varietal composition on this one after a reasonable internet search.

Note: Let breathe at least a hour before enjoying.

N/ Blackcherries. Fat, stewed oaks with white pepper touches. Flint. Game. Candied soil.

T/ Medium-full to full mouthfeel.  Spiced blackcherry and sour cherry. Spicey wood work. Big acid for the price point and varietal. Nicely balanced with the fruit shipment.

Price = $8 – $10

These “Vintner’s Blend’s” from Ravenswood continue to have my Q2PR attention.

Very Good / Very Good +.

88 / 89
