The Vintners Blend Zinfandel by Ravenswood from sunny California is a wonderful American red wine cuvée made from Zinfandel (75%), Petite Sirah (16%), Syrah (6%) and other complementary red grape varieties (3%).
In the glass, this wine shines in a dark cherry red with purple reflections. The fruity bouquet reveals expressive aromas of ripe raspberries, juicy blueberries and black cherries. Fruit aromas are accompanied by subtle hints of oak. The round, juicy body harmonizes wonderfully with the fleshy texture. The palate is pampered by an abundance of wild berry fruits and spice. The fine-grained tannins are well integrated and give this American red wine a very good structure. The finale is wonderfully long and very elegant.
Vinification of the Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel
The grapes for this red wine come from the most diverse vineyards in California. Once the harvested material has arrived in the wine cellar, it is prepared for fermentation. The fermentation process takes about 8 to 10 days and is carried out in stainless steel tanks. This wine then matures for 14 months in French oak barrels - 25% of which are new wood.
