A Rafanelli Winery Dry Creek Valley
Dave Rafanelli has some excellent hillside vineyard sites in the Dry Creek Valley from which he ensures top quality fruit for his own estate wines. He not only produces superlative old-vine, highly complex and characterful Zinfandel, but some impressive Cabernet Sauvignon as well. The estate vineyards are dry farmed (i.e. without recourse to irrigation) and yields are always kept to a minimum. A tiny quantity, just 250 cases or so are made of a special selection, Terrace Select, which is raised in new French barrels for 36 months. (DM)
