The Napa Valley Zinfandel is roughly in the same category as our Sonoma County Zinfandel. Ravenswood has had the good fortune to find some exciting Napa Zinfandel growers. Mature grapes from mature vineyards throughout Napa Valley are used in this wine. The wine has high aromatic scents of raspberries, cherries, plum and spice — aromas which integrate nicely with the vanilla tones of the French oak. Good acidity keeps the wine bright and lively on the palate, while the concentrated fruit flavors add a richness to the flavor that lingers long in the finish of the wine. This Zinfandel should maintain its lovely high tone fruit over the next four to five years and then begin the transformation to a more complex, spicy wine with evolving bottle bouquet.
