Highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry and cherry with complicating nuances of dried rose and Asian spices. Sweet focused red fruit preserve flavors are given strong spine by zesty minerality picking up an exotic floral pastille quality with air. Expands nicely on the finish leaving behind sweet floral and raspberry notes. Packs a lot of flavor while showing superb vivacity and clarity. Joel Peterson told me that he got especially long hang time in this vineyard in '09.

This is a strong Zinfandel. It takes over the mouth with a blast of ripe blackberry cherry anise chocolate and spice. What it lacks in subtlety it more than makes up for in sheer power.

Very much a piece of its own when compared to its somewhat sturdier mates Ravenswood's Dickerson is charged with lots of very zesty young fruit and strikes a fine balance between brawn and beauty. It is the brightest and most buoyant of the bunch and it comes with an extra bit of polish but it too is a Zin that will age famously and has the composition and structure to last for a very long time.
