The Ravenswood Barricia Vineyard Zinfandel 2013 is a muscular, yet refined, red wine. The nose opens with restrained aromas of black fruit. These dark flavors gain steam heading into the palate, which shows wave after wave of dark fruits and rich spices. The density of the wine is matched by a smooth texture, and bright acidity provides generous balance.
The grapes for this red wine were grown in the Sonoma Valley. The old vines of the Barricia Vineyard produce fruit of surpassing intensity and flavor. The subsequent wines are deeply flavored and sumptuous.
