1999 Ravenswood Mendocino Zinfandel
Mendocino, California
WB Rating: 85

Alcohol by volume: 15.3%
Price at time of purchase: $13.99 (Whole Foods)
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel

Forward and fruity (blackberry and cassis), with moderate tannin and very good length. Although the alcohol is fairly high, it doesn't come accross as hot. This is one of Ravenswood's regional, second tier Zins which offer good quality at prices about half that of the more upscale 'single vineyard' offerings. An excellent choice in the $10-15 range. - MJA 2002-07-13
