Ravenswood Zen of Zin 2007
Sonoma County, CA
The nose of this old vine Zinfandel is really nice and earthy. I could sit and smell it for a while. Of course, I wouldn’t get much drinking done then, would I?
It is thin-bodied for a zinfandel. Tastes oaky, with rich plum and leather. There are passing notes of pepper and raspberry also. Sounds like a good mix of notes, but honestly, they didn’t mix together that well. I still drained my share, but a subtler, smoother blend would have been better.by
