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.

94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
Inky ruby. A wild, kaleidoscopic bouquet of red and dark fruit scents, along with intense floral and spice qualities and underlying minerality. Offers a compelling blend of dark, musky fruit and floral tones and brisk minerality, with superb purity and focus. The finish lingers with admirable tenacity, repeating the red fruit notes. I find this really intriguing and suspect that it's destined for a long and graceful evolution.
