At 10 years old, Ravens Wood Old Vine Zinfandel 2009 was delectable, divine and oh so delicious. Full of berry fruit with a perfect amount of spice. Lucky me! — 3 months ago

Single vineyard pinot noir from Coastal California. Very deep purple for the grape. Viscous. Medium plus bodied. Perfume, floral nose notes but to me they are a bit overrun by oak. Belle Glos website says that this wine boasts bright acidity, but I would disagree. In the palate there is a ton of red fruit, almost candy, and very little acidity. Some residual sugar, and low to medium tannins. This is a good wine, but an odd Pinot. To me, it's almost like someone delivered Pinot Noir grapes to Ravenswood for processing as a Zinfandel.
PS it's giving me a headache.
DAY2 UPDATE: So I don't throw out wine, I'm giving it another whirl tonight. Done with dinner. If I wasn't on the Keto diet I'd slam this with a big 2 slices of cheesecake and I bet it would be perfect. The point is-- besides the fact that I miss cheesecake--this is a way over the top Pinot Noir, residual sugar and it's still at 14.6% abv!!! I'm adding the plus because I believe this was made with purpose, just not what I'm looking for.

Silk and tart like...my soul? Maybe. Probably not my soul is silk and umami. Ravenswood doesn’t disappoint. This one one of my first top o’ the line R-woods. It is berry rich and carries undertones of semi-raw white peach which is to say pleasantly bitingly acid and a wee bit floral. Ooh. Ah. Love it. — 2 months ago
Delicious, lots of dark fruits, chocolatey on the nose only. No bite, smooth finish. — 2 months ago
