Wine tasting note: 1995 Ravenswood Old Vines Sonoma Zinfandel

1995 Ravenswood Old Vines Sonoma Zinfandel

27th Aug 1998 GBP12 USA Table Red

Deep, garnet to red, browning slightly at rim.
Opulent and intense currant and strawberry nose with some creamy oak.
Full bodied with juicy, clean berry fruit and creamy oak. Soft, velvety texture; warm and alcoholic with firm, underlying tannins - excellent balance. Long, long finish with flavours of blackcurrants, aniseed and oak coming through.
Superb now. It may age, but why take the risk?
