Natalie's Score: 90/100

Berry fresh, this zin, that has 10% petite sirah, is an exuberant example of California zin. So supple and smooth with full-bodied weight. A prime candidate for the barbecue.

Roger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Patience, Grasshooper, Patience. Ravenswood Barrica Single Vineyard is a very structured Zinfandel. At opening this zinfandel (24% Petite Sirah) is a bit tight, but give it time to breathe and it opens nicely albeit still structured. This old vine, low yield, dry farmed vineyard produces an intense and perfumed wine. We were surprised at how well this wine paired with our dinner of pasta with a rustic spicy Italian meat/tomato sauce. The food enhanced the wine and the wine enhanced the food. The way it should be!
Glass-staining ruby. Fresh red berry preserves and cherry pie on the nose. Deep, chewy cherry and cassis flavours are given a bitter edge by cracked pepper and black tea qualities. The most brooding of this set of releases and worthy of patience. Score: 90-91 Source: Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar
