More About This Wine
About Ravenswood Winery
Ravenswood Winery has humble origins, beginning in 1976. This was the year Joel Peterson harvested his first crop of Zinfandel. Not from his own vines, however, Joel consistently sourced grapes from vineyards in Sonoma County and Napa Valley. At first it wasn’t by choice, he simply couldn’t afford to buy land. Now, steadfast relationships have delivered a successful formula. As the old saying goes…if it ain’t broke…
89-92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001
Bright medium ruby. Highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, violet, anise, bitter chocolate and eucalyptus. Dense but juicy, and still rather folded in on itself. Not weighty but very intensely flavored. Shows lovely sweetness and ripeness for this always-idiosyncratic wine. Notes of blackberry and eucalyptus. Finishes with dusty, spreading tannins.
