Wine of the Week - 2008 Ravenswood Big River Zinfandel

The Big River Vineyard, planted in the stunning red manzanita soils of Alexander Valley in the early 1900s, has been exceedingly well taken care of during its long life. The excellent vineyard practices that have always been used— including crop thinning, crown suckering, and canopy management—almost guarantee a well-rounded, complex, and satisfying wine. The 2008 Big River is dense reddish blue in color. Hints of fennel, oak-spiced roasted nuts and dark berries on the nose. Plummy, ripe mouth-filling flavors with a long, soft, fruit and oak-driven finish help make this wine a deeply concentrated, sappy, satisfying Zinfandel.The 2008 Big River is dense reddish blue in color.
