Reviews and Ratings

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

Tasted this one side by side with the Ravenswood 2015 Old Wine Zinfandel Lodi

Jammy nose with aromas of cherry, raspberry, chalk and hints of smoke. Medium-bodied and smooth with flavours of stewed red fruit, raspberry, spice. Well balanced tannins and acidity here.

Suggested pairing include slow roasted meats and tomato based dishes.

Tasted May 8, 2018
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ravenswood old Vine Zin, 2015 vintage offers ripe field grown raspberry and blackberry coulis, with well-balanced, juicy mouthfeel, medium tanins, medium acidity. Pairs well with BBQ baby back ribs and slow baked saucy beans. Offering great value. Tasted 2015 vintage in July 2017. BespokeTastings 89 points
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby in colour with aromas of cooked raspberry, strawberry, plum, blackberries and baking spice. It is fulled bodied with medium acidity and medium-high tannins with flavours of tart black cherry, baking spice, smoke and plum that are muted compared to the teaming aromas. This will pair well with grilled red meats. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted March 1, 2018. Colour dark ruby red. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of, boysenberry, blueberry, cherry, strawberry and spice. Taste dry, fruity, medium body, mouthwatering, soft tannin. Finishes with lots of fruit and spice. Alcohol is not overpowering. Easy to drink, pair with Ribs or Sweet sauced BBQ . I had a roast chicken and it was an ok match. Good value.

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.
