About Ravenswood Winery
Ravenswood Winery has humble origins, beginning in 1976. This was the year Joel Peterson harvested his first crop of Zinfandel.

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010

In the mouth, there's a refreshing juiciness to the sweet red fruit flavors, with silky tannins providing grip. Becomes deeper and darker with air and finishes on a note of blackberry, with very good focus and cut.
