Ravenswood Winery

Vintners Blend Old Vine California Zinfandel 2017

Very good selection, in the Under $10 range ($5.97 at Total Wines)

Having been to the Ravenswood winery, and trying a good portion of the portfolio, grabbing this was a no-brainer. Decanted for an hour, good fruit in the Boysenberry range (Blackberry x Raspberry, Loganberry being a similar hybrid), nice spicey character. Would purchase again in the price range.

Ravenswood has a nice portfolio, and I hope after this Pandemic period, Gina Gallo opens the doors to the tasting room once again.

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Direct from Le Volpe e l’uva on the south end of the Ponte Vecchio in Firenza, this is what Italian wines are all about. A bit of a youngster for a barolo I grant you, but the dried cherries, spice, and subtle leather notes on this one, coupled with firm but well-integrated tannins, make this a great wine to enjoy on it’s own or with the porcini mushroom ravioli with homemade tomato sauce and aged parmesian that we’re about to have for dinner...well, you can’t go wrong! — 2 months ago
