Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel 2012

Andria scored this wine: 90/100

At first nose, Ravenswood 2012 Old Vine Zinfandel hints at elements of oak and black cherries. However, with your first sip, you will experience a full-bodied wine, which busts open to expose forward notes of black cherry, raspberry and a hint of spice. With a long juicy finish, this wine is just as the winemaker intended: BIG and BOLD, and most importantly, memorable. The average Joe, may find this wine is best served with a snack or meal. I would suggest enjoying this classic Zinfandel with grilled marinated flank steak or bacon-wrapped sirloin tips if sharing!
