Ravenswood Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Old Hill 2008

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.

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.
