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…
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
Bright ruby. Fresh red and dark berry aromas, with notes of licorice and spicy herbs gaining power with air. Bright and graceful, with sexy candied cherry and black raspberry flavors and silky tannins. A tangy mineral note arrives on the back half and carries through the long, sappy finish. This comes in at 13.8% alcohol, which is pretty low by even pinot noir standards these days.
