History

  • Robust and red are the two qualities that define the wines of Raven Wood. At Ravenswood they use Old World wine making methods and try to keep every vineyard separate in the winery along with trying to capture the spirit of California's best growing regions. They strive to put what they pick from the field right into the bottle ‘unaltered, unapologetic, unfussy, unwimpy.' At Ravenswood “our goal is to exalt the grape, not overwhelm it.”

Regional Information

  • The Lodi region is characterized by warm days and cool nights with deep, sandy soils, forcing the vine's roots to push deep to find water and nutrients. The old vines that supply our Lodi Zinfandel typically are the first of our three County Zinfandels to be harvested. The warm days and early ripening lead to a soft and very fruit-driven Zinfandel.

Nice smooth wine

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

I was first introduced to Zinfandel on a cruise. Thought at the time it was a smooth, chocolatey, fruity wine at a reasonable price. Have been looking for the actual wine from the cruise without success, but the Ravenswood is close to what we experienced. Have already re-ordered more bottles

An excellent Zinfandel

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

Zinfandel is one of my favourites and Ravenswood is one of the best. A good, deep ,fruity finish - cherries and blackberries, very smooth and eminently quaffable and with the discount a fantastic price.

Disappointing Zin (especially for the money)

1 stars

Review from tesco.com

Having seen reviews for this wine I was expecting great things but was sadly disappointed. The tannins are very pronounced which isn't something you usually find with a Zinfandel and as such it isn't anything like as smooth as other Zinfandels I've had. For £9.99 there are other much better options.

Fantastic

Review from tesco.com

This is our favourite 'everyday' red, but it is not widely available. So pleased to see it in the Tesco listing, and at an advantageous price. Delivered by cheerful, careful girl, who ensured wine was safely placed into our cottage - no leaving it on the doorstep! - in adequate packaging. All good - will order again..and again.....!

Superb.

Bargain Zinfandel

Review from tesco.com

We have been searching out this excellent Zinfandel ever since discovering it in a restaurant. So the case we bought in the Tesco's 25% off sale produced a beautifully quaffable red at a bargain price.

the shiraz to go for

Review from tesco.com

the american shiraz which beats australian wines at this price.

A Great Wine!

Review from tesco.com

Very smooth, full of ripe berry fruits, perfect on its own or even better with with a chargrilled steak! Only problem was one bottle was not enough, it is deceptively potent at 14.5% but slips down very well....

Had High Expectations...

3 stars

Review from tesco.com

Maybe it's just the 2012 I had, but I was hoping for something a bit exciting when I tried this and have to say I was a little disappointed. Compared to Dancing Bull which I've drunk many time in this states, I found this Zinfandel as completely uneventful. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad wine and perfectly drinkable but I wouldn't buy it again at a tenner.
