|Ravenswood has been harvesting grapes from the Russian River Valley’s Belloni Vineyard since 1991.|
This family-owned vineyard of magnificent old vines, that were lovingly tended to by the late Ricardo Belloni, is a family affair. Carrying on Ricardo’s legacy, his wife, Natalie, works with their children and grandchildren to care for the vineyard and preserve its heritage.
The 2007 Belloni is characterized by particularly dark opaque color and a rich boysenberry, candied cherry, mocha flavor—characteristics achieved by the cofermentation of Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, and Alicante Bouchet grapes. 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 its long, elegant, spicy finish that fills the palate beautifully.
