Gradually going through my Christmas vacation wine experiences. Here’s another strong candidate for your drinking pleasure:
Ravenswood 2005 Sonoma County Old Vine Zinfandel; $12.00. Ravenswood Vintners make some excellent Zin’s and this is certainly one of them. The wine is composed of 95% Zinfandel, 4% Carignane, 1% mixed blacks. It’s another powerful red with a bouquet that exudes blackberries, vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon. Dark red in color with the taste of berries, cocoa, cassis, and black cherry. Medium acidity. Very nice wine for the price.
