2006 Ravenswood Vitners Blend California Zinfandel
Okay, I have to leave for the airport in 45 minutes, so I'm going to make this short and sweet. Overall, I like this wine that I snagged for $8.99 (regularly $10.99). It's fruity up front (and not overly so), but has a nice oaky middle to it and a just-dry-enough finish. It seems full-bodied but not thick. The label says it's all things to all wine drinkers, and I'd have to agree. I could see this pairing with anything from steak to Italian to cheese and crackers. On the patented Chibebräu Wine scale (skip it, only if it's on sale, or buy it again), I'll have to rate this one: buy it again. Now it's time for me to pack!
