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…

($35) Deep ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, apricot and potpourri expands with air and picks up a subtle tobacco quality. A real basket of fruits on the palate, offering flavors of plum, cherry, red and dark berries and exotic apricot and peach pit. The finish repeats the sweet red berry note and clings impressively. I'd drink this sexy wine on the young side, for its bodacious fruit character.
