Wednesday Wine Pick – Every Wednesday I try to find a quality wine that won’t bust the budget. Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfandel 2013. This is a nice value priced mid week wine. Pretty, translucent garnet color with a pale ruby rim. The nose is very faint but with some coaxing you can get some raspberry and eucalyptus notes. The flavors are muted
fruit; dark cherries, blackberry, cranberry and black pepper. The tannin structure is lacking. It has a very long, spicy finish with a faint hint of cinnamon and oak. Great value at around $8. I give it 86 points IMHO.
