    February 7, 2016 - Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted for one hour. Cherry, licorice and spice on the nose and palate. Well balanced. Leads to a medium to long finish with a pretty streak of Zinfandel spice. Medium bodied. Paired with pizza and wings.

    January 31, 2016 - Popped and poured; served with pot roast. Terrific Zinfandel; packed with flavor; smooth and elegant. A pleasure to drink, and gone in no time.

    October 31, 2015 - Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted for one hour. Nose of black cherry, anise and spice. Tart cherry, anise and spice combine with fine tannins on the palate. Leads to a medium to long, soft finish. Medium bodied. Paired with lasagna.

    October 1, 2015 - Bright tart cherry flavors with a bit of a bite in a medium body wine. Just not sure I like the style of Ravenswood zins.

    April 24, 2015 - Predominate red fruit/cherry notes without much backbone or structure. Drinkable but not up to expectations. Similar experience with the 2010. Not sure if its the vineyard or style that I don't care for.
