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…

Inky ruby. Aromas of fresh blueberry and boysenberry, with suave violet and spicecake notes and a hint of white pepper. Lively and focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, with very good depth to its juicy black and blue fruit flavors. Tangy acidity sharpens and lifts the finish, which features chewy tannins and a whiplash of dark berry fruit. This one will benefit from decanting.
