This Zenful Zin has bright, ripe scents of cherry and strawberry jam; spice vanilla and orange peel complete the exotic aura. Very juicy, fresh, ripe and round flavors give the impression of boldness without heaviness. The finish is long, soft and flavorful.
In the 1970's, during the time of California jug wine, Joel Peterson was dreaming fo creating wines that could compete with the best European wines. Ravenswood's first vintage was 1976. In the 1980's Joel started the Vintners Blend Program because he felt the world needed good, affordable wines. In 1999 the company went public with "Dutch Auction" of shares over the internet. 2 years later Ravenswood was purchased by Constellation brands. It is now a productive partnership with the winery still being under Joel's control.
