Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit for the 2008 Zen of Zin was sourced from vineyards in Sonoma County and other carefully selected California winegrowing regions. A smooth Zinfandel with floral and spice aromas, this wine delivers fruit flavors of blackberry and raspberry complemented by notes of plum, coffee, and chocolate. These complex flavors give way to a rich mouthfeel, and a long silky finish. Enjoy this wine with food or as a stand-alone bottling to be shared with good company and laughter. Always laughter.

About Ravenswood:

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 our long-standing relationships with over 60 independent grape growers. Vineyards are chosen for their location, age, yield and special flavor characteristics. At Ravenswood, we are devoted to working with growers who share our philosophy about high quality.

Ravenswood Vineyard Designate wines are made employing what winemaker Joel Peterson refers to as “stubborn and impractical” Old World enological practices. Wines are fermented in small wooden tanks using wild, natural yeasts and punched down by hand three to five times per day. The wines are characterized by intense, spicy aromas supported by rich, berry flavors and long, clean finishes.
