With excitingly big, bold flavors and incredible structure, the 2014 vintage is a perfect antipode to the understated Chardonnays out there. Ripe peach, apricot, and citrus aromas along with enormous toasted oak and spice flavors will leave you begging for more.
On a fall day in 1976, as ravens taunted from tree branches above, Joel Peterson worked doggedly to bring in four tons of grapes before a looming thunderstorm hit. The fruit he crushed that night was used for one of two single-vineyard Sonoma County Zins – the first wines to bear Ravenswood’s signature ring of ravens. Ravenswood’s “No Wimpy Wines” credo says it all – embrace the bold, abhor the bland.
The same year America celebrated its bicentennial, Ravenwood's founding fathers announced their own independence from business as usual, tying their success to the underdog variety that today is considered California’s heritage grape – Zinfandel.
