1994 Ravenswood Zinfandel Monte Rosso
Sonoma Valley, California
 
WB Rating: 87

 
Alcohol by volume: 14.6%
Price at time of purchase: $20.00 (Library wine)
 
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Not stated. Assumed 100% Zinfandel.

Elegant, nicely integrated cherry, strawberry, and oak flavors from a vineyard used by several wineries. Definitely superior to the '94 Ridge Monte Rosso, but also definitely inferior to the '95 from Ravenswood, which was spectacular. The '94 is full-bodied and has all the right components, but just doesn't quite have the grip and power of the '95. (HK) - HK 2000-06-03
