Ravenswood Vintners Zinfandel (750ml)
Fueled initially by the inspiration and winemaking skills of Joel Peterson, aided and abetted by his business partner W. Reed Foster, Ravenswood winery has been dedicated to top quality, hand-crafted wine since the first crush in 1976. Every Ravenswood wine carries a unique vintage and vineyard identity in addition to the intense powerful – gothic – character with which the winery has come to be associated.
A key to Ravenswood’s success is their long-standing relationships with over 60 independent grape growers. Vineyards are chosen for their location, age, yield and special flavor characteristics. At Ravenswood, they are devoted to working with growers who share their philosophy about high quality.
The Vintners Blend has a somewhat smoky and savoury character at the core of chocolate, peppery spices and blackberry aromas. In the mouth, the entry is smooth and then it picks up some texture mid-palate. The finish is long and trails berry and mocha flavours. Pair with hearty mole chili.
