ravenswood barricia CORKSCREWs REVIEWs

 

 

Ravenswood Winery-Zinfandel-Barricia Vineyard-Sonoma Valley-California-2007-14.5% Alcohol-$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.
