2021 Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2021 Valravn Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley, Moon Mountain, and Sonoma Valley. Combining elevations, aspects, climates, and soil types allows us to blend the components for a seamless composition.
In the cellar, hand-sorted grapes undergo an extended cold soak followed by primary fermentation in stainless steel. Following primary fermentation, the wine is racked to French oak barrels (new, second use, and neutral) for 18 months aging - Sylvain, Gamba, Darnajou, Nadalie and Seguin Moreau cooperages.

“Ripe, spiced and toasty cabernet with blackcurrants, blackberries, cedar, pine nuts and black olives. Full-bodied, structured and a little tight with a sandy texture to the tannins and a firm, slightly chewy finish."
TASTING NOTES |
Strikes a great balance of savory and sweet immediately apparent in the espresso roast and savory herb components layered on top of rich blackberry, marionberry and cassis fruit. It has a supple tannin structure with high tones, opulent fruit, and a long, satisfying finish.
