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…
90(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2010
($50) Inky ruby. Spicy cherry, licorice, tobacco and rose aromas are complicated by notes of black pepper and herbs. Lively and sharply focused, with a restrained sweetness to its redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors and well-judged acidity. A peppery note adds back-end cut and carries through a long, tightly wound finish. Give this a couple of years in the cellar.
