No wimpy wines, that is the credo of Ravenswood. Single Vineyard, Vintner's Blend and the county series, they are all unadulterated, unapologetic, unfussy and unwimpy.


Winemaker's Notes:

This unique vineyard in Sonoma Valley is an extension of the Oak Hill Organic Farm, owned and operated for many years by the now deceased Otto Teller, a sage octogenarian who employed no pesticides or irrigation. The 110-year-old vines are situated on a gravelly, well-drained hill that receive a full share of summer sun as well as cooling breezes. The crop level is seldom higher than one and a half tons per acre, and this scant tonnage - combined with the ideal growing conditions - produces exceptionally intense, spicy fruit. Old Hill Zinfandel is dark and rich with provocative flavors of black-berries, mint and black pepper. Its unparalleled depth and complexity will reward those who have the patience to put a few bottles away in the cellar.
