    November 22, 2012 - Drinking very nicely with still a beautiful berry, bramble and spice nose, abundant black fruit and silky smooth tannins.

    October 11, 2011 - Medium purple, semi opaque. Nose of plums, jammy, bit of leathe. Vanilla and fruit, medium mouthful with a tang in the mid palate. Somewhat monotonal, this is not a bottle I wished I had bought more of although I would not say no if someone else poured me a glass ; ) Drank at Canadian Thanksgiving with good friends.

    October 2, 2010 - Purple color. Nose of flowers and cherry. This has mellowed nicely since my last bottle 9 mos ago. Smooth mouth-feel with pleasant cherry and vanilla flavors and a smooth medium finish.

    (Ravenswood Napa Zinfandel) #5; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-nice fruit; like purple & cherry NERDS candy, but not too over the top; TASTE-this wine is just a gloop of fruit; like children's fruit flavored toothpaste glopped into your mouth; unfocused fruit; no mid-palate; no second tier flavors; no structure; boring at best; I don't like it at all; JR-87/88; GV-67
