Ravenswood "Besieged" (Sonoma County) 2013 wine review by (PB)

Pigmented, dark garnet with aromas of deep pomegranate, blackberry, Plum, blueberry,

Palate-- Big, 30 megaton fruit bomb with rich, deep black berry and dark plum with heavy flavors and plenty of wood; big spicy flavors and black tar.

This is a blend of 5 grapes I believe from the Ravenswood clan who have a great reputation for well crafted wines. It is well made and a big wine with a lot going on. I paid $14 for this wine and its a nice quaff on its own but with the right food, its a tasty addition so raise a glass.
