Winemaker Notes

Deep red. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays fresh red berries, flowers and herbs, with an exotic hint of singed orange. High-pitched red berry and cherry flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and show very good clarity, with a spicy kick on the back half. This tangy, precise wine finishes with good youthful snap and mineral-driven persistence.

The 2012 Dickerson is a brilliant example of Napa Valley Zinfandel with bright acidity and ripe, red fruit. Good weight and a nice mouthfeel set the stage for a fruity, lingering finish.

A wonderful effort, the 2012 Ravenswood Dickerson has such a gorgeous aroma; beautiful raspberries just flow out of its nose; quite rich on the palate and possessing superb balance and style; easily on of California's top efforts.

Give this hours in the decanter to grow lush and smooth before serving it with grilled lamb. The juicy cherry fruit comes forward with air, the hard tannins transforming into flavors of red berry skin and tomato skin. It's evocative of Napa Valley without any dimpling of fruit.

Wine Enthusiast
There’s a feral element to this vineyard-designate, the producer’s only one from Napa Valley, from a vineyard planted originally in 1930. Extracted and thick, it offers plum, blackberry and raspberry around big, broad shoulders of mocha and oak. And as always, there’s a hint of mint.

Ravenswood Gary Sitton and Joel Peterson Winery Image

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.

Ravenswood Vineyard Designate wines are made employing what 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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
