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

I'm giving this wine a 90 for a couple of reasons. It tastes very good, it's a great price and many reviews will have it as one of the best wines you will find for under $20. I like it so much because Zinfandel is so food friendly. This Zinfandel from Ravenswood is full of gorgeous juicy fruit flavors and toasty vanilla oak. A hint of pepper just makes it a great pairing with barbecue and grilled foods.

Opaque, dark garnet red with nose of very ripe raspberries, red cherries and bousenberrie, with spicy blk pepper notes. Palate continues the ripe red berry fruit flavours , with spice, vanilla and toasted oak.Long ripe berry finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
