Valravn Zinfandel is from old, bush-pruned vines averaging 40 years old (some over 100) across the county’s best appellations including Rockpile, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River Valley AVAs. Hand harvested, hand sorted and gently destemmed before fermentation.
In the cellar, a short cold soak was followed by primary
fermentation in small lots using a combination of open and closed top tanks. The berries were kept in tact to capture the buoyant fruit profile. Following fermentation, the wine was barreled down for malolactic and aging for 14 months in French oak, 10% of which was new.

“The 2018 Zinfandel is racy and exuberant, with tons of varietal character. This stylish, budget-friendly red hits all the right notes. Succulent red fruit, mint, cedar and sweet floral notes flesh out in a delicious, affordable wine that over-delivers big time.“ - Antonio Galloni
