If you are looking for a pleasant red wine with broad appeal, Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel 2003 may be the ticket. In the glass, it has a pleasing deep red color. This wine has the characteristic fruitiness of a Zin, with black cherry predominating and a hint of vanilla and dried fruit. It’s soft on the palate, with a modest finish. It may not be a truly great Zin, but for the price it’s a fine choice to accompany beef on the grill or any other dish where a gulpable red is needed.
We found this bottle at Sam’s Club, holding down the low end of their red wine display at under seven bucks.
