2011 Rafanelli Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1166244 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark The valley is gravelly on the east side and more volcanic and red on the west side. They have always blended the fruit from both sides of the valley, from five different vineyards, to make just one wine. 7% Petite Sirah. Fermented in small open-top tanks. Matured in new and used French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. Sweetness of oak on the nose but there is still the fragrance of the variety. Red fruit, moreish acidity, full and generous but finely ripe. Pretty firm grip and more savoury on the finish. Scented red fruit dominates on the nose as the oak seems to recede in the glass. 17+/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

K&L Notes

The Rafanelli family is now in its fourth generation of growing grapes and making wine in the Dry Creek Valley. This winery is small and family operated, and the focus has always been on quality over quantity. The winery consistently produces Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon that are among the finest in Sonoma County!
