A. Rafanelli Cabernet Sauvignon 1992
Dry Creek Valley｜Sonoma County
A pristine, aged, Cabernet Sauvignon from one of California's most iconic properties.
These wines are available only in restaurants and through the winery; indeed they only accept calls and in-person meetings; they're old-school to the core and barely do email.
We came by this pristine aged lot from a private collection, and Rafanelli wines with age are some of our favorites. The iron-rich, volcanic and alluvial soils in this pocket of Dry Creek valley make for intense, plummy, leathery complex reds, especially those with age. Experiencing them is ethereally satisfying.
