Cavallo Point's Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning wine list is comprised of over 2,200 selections from 25 countries, with vintages dating back to 1922. Like many of the world’s great wines, our list is created to reflect a sense of place. Cavallo Point sits at the gateway to California’s venerable North Coast, home to some of the world’s most renowned wine-growing regions. Our list celebrates the history of wine in California, and presents a vision of where it is going. From the state’s legendary wineries that laid the foundation, and the cult wines driving the mystique, to the small production, artisanal producers who are pushing the envelope of quality, we strive to tell the true story of wine in California.
A. Rafanelli Winery
At Cavallo Point we are privileged to work with a wonderful winery like A. Rafanelli. The Rafanelli family has been growing grapes and making wine in Dry Creek Valley since the early 1900's. They have a supreme focus on family, tradition and of course, making world class Sonoma wines. Being that production is so small, we are honored to have been selected as one of Rafanelli's esteemed restaurant partners. In addition to their beautiful 2014 Dry Creek Zinfandel, we are thrilled to announce that we have added their masterfully-crafted 2014 Dry Creek Cabernet Sauvignon to our list as well. It is a well-structured Cabernet with the inviting flavors of black cherry and plum, shaded by a touch of toasted oak. The rich flavors wrap around the fine tannins to coat the palate and end with a measure of finesse and grace that can take you from your entrée straight through one of Chef Ethan's wonderfully chocolatey desserts.
We hope you will stop by and enjoy the wines of A. Rafanelli Winery with us soon!
