    Winemaker's Notes:

    NO WIMPY WINES! has been the rally cry for Ravenswood for decades, and the 2008 Vintners Blend Zinfandel fully embodies this uniquely Ravenswood mandate. It's a robust yet accessible wine with aromas of red raspberry and toasty oak that give way to seriously mouth-watering flavors of cherry and boysenberry. Notes of warm spice and layers of fruit are perfectly balanced with good acidity and soft, supple tannins.

    Fruit for the 2008 Vintners Blend Zinfandel was sourced from premium lots in multiple regions of California. Imminently drinkable, this Zinfandel is a go-to bottling for impromptu entertaining. Pair with bold foods like spiced ribs, barbequed chicken, and juicy burgers off the grill — because Ravenswood Zinfandel is anything but wimpy.

    Blend: 77% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, and 5% Carignane

    Now you all know how I love Zinfandel, and I acquired those feelings from some of my earliest experiences with Ravenswood Zins, before that I just thought all Zinfandels were pink wines (call me a child of the 1980s!). This particular wine has a nice deep ruby color in the glass, and the nose exhibits aromas of leather, blackberry, plum and black cherry, and just the faintest hint of baking spice. The taste is very fruit forward, a very jammy sort of Zin, with flavors of ripe plum, cherries, and blackberries, giving way to some fresh herbs, cedar and spice notes midpalate. The tannins are quite well developed, leading to a nice, tight dry finish.
