Ravenswood Zinfandel Old Hill 2011

Ravenswood Zinfandel Old Hill 750ml 2011        
Sku: 1865779*

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.

The cherry, spice and herb aromas lead to focused plum and herb flavors. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases made. -TF

Inky ruby. A complex bouquet presents dark fruit liqueur, licorice, violet and fruitcake, with a smoky overtone and a hint of black pepper. Stains the palate with sappy boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors that spread out on the back half and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance. Dusty tannins build through a sweet, strikingly persistent finish brightened by a vibrant, spicy jolt of peppery spices. I suspect that this will be the longest-lived of this year’s set of zins here, but I don’t think that it will take forever to unfold, either.
