The best '96 Ravenswood we've tasted, by far. Full-bodied yet still firm and balanced. Mouth-coating flavors of plums and dark cherries with a powerful streak of cedar adding to the complexity. Handles the elevated alcohol well. Still has some round tannins and should hang in there for a few more years. - WB Team 2000-11-19
