From the Winery:

BLEND | 92% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah & Grenache

 VINEYARDS |Since our first vintage, Valravn Zinfandel has been based on old, bush-pruned vines averaging 40 years old (some over 100) across the county’s best appellations. The 2022 vintage is Zinfandel from two Dry Creek Valley parcels (one sandy loam, the other volcanic) and a Russian River AVA plot. We also included Petite Sirah and Grenache, which were cofermented with the Zinfandel for added complexity. Hand harvested, hand sorted, and gently destemmed before fermentation.

 WINEMAKING |In the cellar, the grapes went through a cold soak (with the berries intact) to capture the juicy fruit profile, followed by primary fermentation. Once fermented dry, the wine was racked to barrel for malolactic and aging for ten months in a diverse French oak barrel regimen of varying ages (first use to completely neutral) and sizes (barrique to puncheon).

PRESS | 91 JS
“Rich and mellow character here with notes of ripe plums, strawberries, chocolate, sweet spices and hints of tar. Vibrant and succulent on the palate with a deep, chocolatey, berry-soaked center palate. Mellow and fruity."

EDITOR'S CHOICE
“This sleek, elegant wine holds a surprising amount of concentrated blackberries, raspberries and strawberries on a silky texture soothed by light tannins. Layers of fruit keep revealing more black fruits, mint and black pepper notes.”

TASTING NOTES | The 2022 Valravn Zinfandel is juicy and exuberant, bursting with black fruits, raspberry liqueur, and spiced rhubarb. Sappy and unctuous with notes of Mexican chocolate, licorice, sweet spice, and tobacco.
