Wine Review: Ravenswood Zinfandel

Ravenswood Zin
I was thinking about other things I could blog about, and I thought about the things I do.  I read.  I write.  I cook (a lot).  And I drink wine (a lot 🙂 )
So what better than to share a few of the wines I enjoy and what I like about them, as well as some food  pairings.  With that said, here we go!

Ravenswood Zinfandel (2011)

When I was younger, I was a total Cabernet Sauvignon girl.  As I got older, I rolled through Merlot and Pinot Noir, and right now (and for the past few years), my favorite red is Zin.  There’s just something multidimensional about Zin, especially when you get a good one.  I happen to love the Ravenswood.  It’s affordable (usually about $15/bottle), and because of it’s round, soft texture, pairs with everything from spicy chicken and fish dishes to the traditional red meat fare.  I also enjoy it because it has a bit of bite on the back of your palate, kind of a “hey, this is WINE” zing that makes me smile.  Also a plus is that there’s no discernible aftertaste, so you won’t regret it if you’re sipping with hors d’ourves, rather than a full meal.

If you’re a red fan looking for a wine that pairs well with a broad spectrum of meals and nibbles, then give this one a try!
