Ravenswood Single Vineyard Zinfandel Duo
Includes One Bottle Each of:
- Ravenswood Dickerson Vineyard Zinfandel 2013
91 points Wine & Spirits"Joel Peterson makes this wine from a vineyard on Zinfandel Lane in St. Helena. In 2013, Dickerson is a fresh, open zin, yielding generous fruit in a cascade of blackberry, strawberry and red currant flavors. The texture is soft and clean if you open it now; the tannins gain prominence as it develops with air, the structure feeling harder, the fruit less accessible. Zinfandel is often best immediately on release, or more than ten years from the vintage, and this is a wine to go short or long; forget about it in the mid-term."
90 points Wine Enthusiast “A 100% varietal wine, this offers a juiciness of red fruit that's deliciously inviting, surrounded by plenty of cinnamon and black pepper. Grippy and full bodied, it reins in its ripeness, remaining structured and complex through a mineral-driven finish.”
- Ravenswood Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel 2014
95 points Tasting Panel"Wild berry, coffee and earth define the perfume arising from this single vineyard Zinfandel, which also blends in 19% Petite Sirah and 5% Carignane. Aged for 19 months in French oak, and boasting an abv of 15.1%, this inky black wine is a zinphony of taste and texture. Creamy blackberry and anise adds weight and coats the tongue, while dark chocolate melts on a black pepper path."
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
