Ravenswood Shiraz (Vintner's Blend) 2010 wine reveiw by (PB)
Black cheery hue lighter than Shiraz should be and aromas that smell more like a "kit wine" than a maker of the caliber of Ravenswood.
Bouquet is non-descript with aromas of berries that is confused as to what it is.
Palate--Balanced, some decent berry fruit present finishing quickly.
When I want Shiraz, this is not what I expect even at this price point. Ravenswood is one of the great wine makers of California and while I understand the economics of business, this just shouldn't be under the Ravenswood name. Pass on this.
