Red berries, licorice, and herbs on the nose
Full bodied but a bit choppy on the palate
More red berries on the finish with some chocolate and spice
For $10, this isn't bottled to be a show stopper. However, it should show as good as other Zinfandels at that price like offerings from Rosenblum, Four Vines, and Bogle- but it doesn't.
Ravenswood has made a lot of good Zinfandel over the years, but pass on this one. Grab a 2007 instead, which likely just hit the shelves near you. And raise a glass of that!
