Ravenswood Besieged is a blend of Old Vine California heritage varietals. It's a limited release, which Ravenswood bestows on us every now and again. They're typically small production, specialty wines and/or new releases. Lucky us! The Beiseiged blend will have you scrambling for more. It evokes only the darkest fruit, with a side of exotic spice, it's wrapped in a full body with a long, long finish. If that isn't enough, this Ravenswood new kid is such a bargain you should buy it by the careful. And that's our story.
Winery: "Dark, rich, full flavors ignite your senses with blackberry, black cherry, plum, cardamon, resolving into a delicious, smooth, satisfying finish."
Best Winery Description Ever: "Under a threatening sky, BESIEGED by rain clouds, lightning glinting in the hills, winemaker Joel Peterson worked alone to collect grapes destined for one of his debut wines. As he worked, ravens laughed from above, but instead of being harbingers of doom, they brought him good fortune, becoming the totem for his winery."
