Wine tasting note: 1996 Ravenswood Old Vines Sonoma Zinfandel

1996 Ravenswood Old Vines Sonoma Zinfandel

3rd Mar 1999 GBP12 USA Table Red

Almost opaque garnet, very gradually paling to a pink rim.
Quite dumb but deep, with black cherries, vegetation notes of pickled herring (?!?)
Medium bodied and juicy with sweet forest fruit flavours and a hint of creamy coffee.
Integrated with ripe tannins and lively acidity.
Drink now.

Wine Tasting: U.S. of A. 1995 and 1996
