Willi's Seafood And Raw Bar/A. Rafanelli Winery/ Healdburg's Best Partners
We have been enjoying a beautiful day in Healdsburg! We have great new features with Willi's Seafood and Raw Bar,featuring the wines of A. Rafanelli. We will check out the tasting notes and websites,and then enjoy great new audio features. Four generations as growers and producers of fine wine, our family is proud to continue in the same winemaking and farming traditions as the founding generation. We continue to work passionately as stewards of the land with sustainable farming practices and preserving the traditional style of handcrafted wines, with the best intent to preserve the heritage for the future generations. We have opened three wines.The Zinfandel, The Cabernet ,and the Merlot!All from A. Rafanelli winery. 2019 Zinfandel A bright and lively vintage with instantly charming aromas of freshly picked raspberries, blackberries and cherries. Hints of cinnamon and star anise add a playful zing of spice to this elegantly styled zin. With a softness on the palate and supple tannins, this wine is enjoyable now in its vibrant youth, yet its classic character will allow for it to mature further. 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon This wonderfully rich and complex wine shows youthful restraint. Subtle hints of huckleberry and black currant mingle with nuances of allspice, dried herbs, and sweet tobacco. Strong in structure and well balanced with focused tannins proves its aging potential. 2018 Merlot Leading with aromas of ripe plum and rhubarb pie, this smooth luscious wine follows up with dark chocolate, and hints of bay leaf and sarsaparilla. The delectable tannins and long rich finish will engage your palate and promise further development of flavors in the cellar. our audio features features the winemaker of this great Healdsburg Winery,and the great menu of willi's Seafood and Raw Bar. Since the early 1900’s A. Rafanelli has been growing grapes and making wine in the Dry Creek Valley. Four generations later we remain dedicated to carrying on our family tradition. Our winery is still family owned and operated, and that means production is limited. The focus here has always been quality not quantity! Our family takes pride in working hard to produce consistently exceptional wines every year, specializing in some of the finest Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. If you are going to be in our area and would like to visit, please call. We always look forward to meeting new wine enthusiasts. I love Willi's Seaffod as well as all the Stark's Restaurants.
