Um erg Ravenswood...I always am just waiting for disappointment. And I’m always so keen on this wine. RIPE! Fun. There is acid balance and it isn’t...fresh but not in an icky way. It is...what I feel excited about when I think Lodi Zin ❤️

Straight forward notes of blackberry jam, notes of licorice and cherry kir. All a little difficult to extract. The black berry fruit follows through on the palette but signature old vine concentration of fruit, prune and earth are lacking. A tasty bottle. Not ravenswoods best. But a sharp label.

A fairly serious Zin, especially for the price. A dark and beautiful purple, turning garnet towards the rim. Rich black berries and raspberries mingle with hot earth. Black and green bell pepper are also there, as well as a smell of old timber. The palette is rich and full - there may be a touch of Syrah in there - the dark fruits meld into sweet, black earth. The finish lingers into pleasant oakyness.

Really full and lots of deep fruit. Went back to get another bottle and they were all sold out :(

As with most Zins, it has powerful fruit flavours. Smooth, and not palate-crushing.

Yummy Lodi zinfandel. Bright red jammy berries with a nice peppery kick. Nicely balanced, lots of fruit and subtle floral on the nose, medium tannins. I'm a huge fan of Lodi zins, and this is nice for the price point.
