Rich yet smooth chocolaty goodness from California’s Lodi region.

Ravenswood ‘Old Vine Zinfandel’ from Lodi is a dark ruby wine with a tawny brown edge and aromas of cedar box, tobacco leaf and intense black fruits (Black Cherry / Blackberry). Surprisingly Medium-Full bodied considering this is a blend of 77% Zinfandel & 23% Petit Syrah, but well balanced and with velvety tannins that serve to lend a trace of extra structure to prop up the ripe abundance of fruit. More tobacco leaf and a whiff of chocolate on the Palate lead to a smooth mouth coating finish that fades with a warming lick of kier. £8.99 from Majestic Wines (with 2 or more bottles in your case).
