  • Like any petite sirah, this one has the gritty tannins and earthy fruit. The length was great and a smooth finish. Had with a roasted, spicy, meaty dish and worked great. The tannins worked great with the spice and the dried / earthy fruit held up to the meat.
    The wine looks Inky colored. The legs are Slow. It smells like Dust, and Forest floor. It tastes like and Prune. The body is Full. The wine has Leathery texture. The wine finishes Long.

  • Deep dark purple. Some dark fruit on the nose with a medium finish that includes a nice spice. Not much complexity in this. Tasted after letting it breath for 30 minutes.

  • Needs to breathe!

    C: opaque purple/black
    N: Intense blueberry and blackberry. Hints of tobacco, anise, smoke, and decaying Autumn leaves
    P: Just like the nose, blueberry, blackberry, and toss in a can of cola.
    F: med-long

    This is a huge wine. Intense flavors. Nice tannins on the finish. Well worth the $8 paid!

  • As usual for Ravenswood, this is a big wine. Not necessarily complex, this is all power. Super purple color. The nose is not all fruit, showing some smoke, earth, and tobacco along with some big blueberry and blackberry. Well extracted, pretty big in the mouth. Concentrated blueberry, blackberry, and plum with some non fruit flavors like, cola and graphite. Has some of that musty, wet tree bark flavor in the background. Some grainy little tannins. An indication of medium heavy toast oak, maybe American. Lingering black fruit finish.
