Ravenswood Zinfandel Barricia Vineyard Sonoma Valley 2013
CLICK TO ENLARGE
Even before Ravenswood made Barricia a ‘name’ some of you old-timers may remember this vineyard anchoring some great Kenwood Zins of the past. The history of this parcel goes back to General Vallejo himself in the 1840’s, grapes have almost always had a home here. This one is sourced half from Zinfandel planted prior to 1892 and the balance from new plantings of Zin and Petite Sirah, which makes up around 20% of the blend. That Petite gives the wine heft and another level of complexity. Wow.
