ravenswood barricia CORKSCREWs REVIEWs

 

Ravenswood Winery-Zinfandel-Barricia Vineyard-Sonoma Valley-California-2007-$25.98-A nose of dark cherry,  dark purple in the core of the glass, lightening to a bit of a garnet red on the edges.  This single vineyard Zin is medium to full bodied, with a long finish. The alcohol comes through, but not too hot. The wine is robust and full-flavored, with a touch of dark fruit, but more obviously, a smoky, meaty element, a very good buy at the sale price of $15.              WS-84              WE-93                CR-88                 Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
