Raeburn is an Olde English term which means “the river where one goes to drink.” So, it’s fitting that Raeburn’s expressive, beautifully balanced wines begin in the heart of the Russian River Valley where some of the world’s finest Burgundy grapes are grown. Raeburn Winery is located on Olivet Road, a quiet country lane in the heart of Sonoma County’s famed Russian River Valley. Originally built in as an egg storage facility, Olivet was converted to a small production winery by iconic Sonoma County vintner, Cecil DeLoach, in 2000. The winery was then purchased by wine and spirits innovator, Derek Benham, in January 2005 and has since become Raeburn’s home. Winemaker’s tasting notes: “Expressive Cabernet with juicy fruit notes, fine tannins, and a muscular mid-palate. Layered flavors of plum, dark cherry and vanilla. Expect and long and balanced finish.” 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.5% Petit Verdot, 9.5% Syrah.
