So I went off to cook dinner, but the wife said she was in the mood for pizza. Ok, I can do that!
Opened the Ravenswood and poured a few sips. Deep ruby color with pink edges. Brambly, dusty cherry fruit with a hint of glue-like volatility, but not so much as to be distracting. In any even the volatility blew off after 15 minutes, and left a palate of ripe cherry, raspberry and earthy strawberry. It is a touch hot, but food ameliorates that. The tannins are still there, but there is enough buffering fruit. Clean finish. Good but not great stuff. I have a couple more that will meet their maker with pizza or burgers over the summer.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
