Ravenswood Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel is a great introduction to Ravenswood’s highly sought-after wines. The Sonoma-based Ravenswood Winery is considered one of California’s most influential wineries with a devoted following for its rich, distinctive wines of exceptional quality. However, just because its wines are powerful doesn’t mean that they don’t offer heaps of complexity, refinement and elegance.
The winegrowing region of Lodi is synonymous with the Zinfandel grape, boasting some of America’s most ancient Zinfandel vines. In fact, there are more plantings here over 50 years old than any other region in the US. Over decades, these old vines have anchored their roots deep into the ground and the resulting fruit is capable of producing concentrated, robustly spicy wines.
