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 the first Zinfandels to bear Ravenswood's signature ring of ravens. Ravenswood's "No Wimpy Wines" credo says it all — embrace the bold, abhor the bland.
Ravenswood Vintners Blend is sourced from vineyards throughout California. This big, in-your-face wine proves, once again, how sinfully good Zin can be. This Zin sets the stage with tantalizing aromas of black cherry, raspberries, and blueberries along with hints of oak. It then stops the show with a cascade of fruit flavors, flexible tannins, and a long, fruit-forward finish. Enjoy with a heaping plate of red-sauce pasta or barbecued pork ribs. (from the vintner)
