WineScores' Review

Plush, concentrated, lengthy.
This single, old vine, Dry Creek vineyard Zinfandel is a premium fan favourite in the portfolio of Ravenswood founder, the gregarious Joel Peterson. Peterson remains the face of Ravenswood (Mantra: No Wimpy Wines), despite its ownership by Arterra Brands (in Canada). It's been aged in barrel for two years then more in bottle before release.
Expect mocha, licorice, purple berries and sweet black cherries, baking spices and black pepper aromas. It is supple, impressively concentrated and has a long cinnamon and clove flavoured finish. This vintage seems to lack the benefit of acidity as the previous one did.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
