Description

Tasting Notes

Seemingly sweet, this wine is very round and full with lots of boysenberry, blackberry, and blueberry hints to it. The nice cool climate acidity gives the wine a good balance and structure. Enjoy it's long, elegant, spicy finish that fills the palate beautifully. A field blend of Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Carignan and Petite Sirah.

Vineyard Notes

Belloni is a small (7.5 acres) vineyard in Sonoma's Russian River Valley that produces precious little fruit every year. Ravenswood has been harvesting grapes from the Russian River Valley's Belloni Vineyard since 1991.

94 Points

Ricardo and Natalia Belloni grew up in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, moved to California and eventually purchased a vineyard on Wood Road outside Santa Rosa in 1971. It's a flat site on clay-loam soil, and the vines - mostly zinfandel, with petite sirah, carignane and alicante bouschet - were originally planted around 1900. It was the age of the vines and the relatively cool Russian River climate that attracted Joel Peterson to the vineyard, part of his collection of single-site zinfandels since 1991. When Belloni hits, as it did in 2015, it's a wine of restrained power, its fresh blueberry flavors underscored by an earthy focus - by forest floor and savory notes of bluefoot mushrooms. There's warm generosity pushing against the cool restraint, the flavors lasting on overdrive.
