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.

Dark ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry compote and licorice. Densely packed but lively, with good spicy lift to its dark berry and bitter cherry flavors. Becomes firmer with air and finishes with building tannins, an echo of licorice and firm, spicy cut. Give this one some time to unwind a little.
