Ravenswood Winery Old Hill Zinfandel 2007
More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|Sonoma’s first famous Zinfandel, made in 1862 by William Hill, was grown in this vineyard. These vines—probably Sonoma’s oldest—turn out remarkable wines. Old Hill Vineyard contains 14 different varieties, but is blended to be 75% Zinfandel. It has Rhone-like intensity with striking precise aromas of blackberry, black pepper, vanilla, coffee, smoke, and mint.|
This 2007 Old Hill Zinfandel is a well-balanced, graceful, complex wine that will age very nicely. The wine keeps unfolding each time you put your nose in the glass. You’ll notice an array of scents and flavors in this
wine; most notably mulberry and blackberry, followed by a strikingly pure, focused finish. The wine gains intensity with air, making it a great wine for an extended, lingering dinner. It is lovely to be consumed now or put down for years to come.
