Valravn Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Critical Acclaim: 92 pts Wine Enthusiast; 91pts James Suckling.

About the Wine: 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.

Winemaker's 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.

“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.“- James Suckling

"This taut and well-balanced wine offers focused aromas and flavors of black cherries, raspberries, cinnamon and toast on a firm texture of good acidity and muscular tannins. While tempting now for its layers of fruit and oak spice, the wine should show best from 2026." - Wine Enthusiast
