Winemaker Notes

Brilliant example of Napa Valley Zinfandel with bright acidity and ripe, red fruit. This wine is traditionally full of ripe raspberries. Good weight and a nice mouthfeel set the stage for a fruity, lingering finish.

Trees have always been an important part of Dickerson vineyard. The eucalyptus at the north end of the property imparts an inarguable influence on the wine's flavor, but the tree that meant the most to Bill Dickerson was a 100 year-old oak. The ancient sentinel was a monument to the history of the spot and he had the image emblazoned on his own wine label. When he bought the vineyard in 1971, the old, head-pruned varieties were hardly in demand, but the elegant, focused Zinfandel made from them was so distinctive that Bill never considered replanting.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Of the ten acres at Dickerson Vineyard, on the north side of Zinfandel Lane in St. Helena, four were planted in 1930; the balance was planted in 1979 and ’85. For a wine grown in the center of the valley, this sustains a notably cool, shady feel, the ripeness expressed in a bright beam of red fruit. It lasts with sweet tannins, their satisfying richness touched by scents of cherry blossoms.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A refined Zinfandel, balanced and well-structured, with precise cherry, white pepper and dill accents that linger elegantly. Drink now through 2028.

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.
