I realize that my wine vocabulary isn't exactly refined. In fact the other day when I opened this wine, I thought, hmmm....this tastes just like I was drinking it in the heart of the winery near the barrels. To me, good wine equals wine that tastes like you are eating the barrel. It finally dawned on me that I like the oak flavors. (I'm quick, I tell ya.) Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel is full of oakiness along with cherry or raspberries as well. The price can't be beat for a weeknight wine.
Bliss in a $7 bottle.
