93+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

...notes of charcoal, asphalt, pepper, black cherries, blackcurrants, meaty notes, a big spicy, earthy, herbal richness, multi-dimensional mouthfeel and sensational concentration...

92Vinous / IWC

Expansive aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry-vanilla, Indian spices and cola, with a suave floral note emerging with aeration. On the palate, densely packed, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors show a compelling blend of richness and vivacity. Closes juicy, spicy and very long, with outstanding persistence and smooth tannins that meld completely with the wine's vibrant fruit.

90Wine Enthusiast

Grippy and somewhat subdued and tightly wound, this wine black in color and profile. Blackberry and black licorice open the proceedings, before powerful hits of black pepper. Leather and game are in the mix, too, giving the wine a wild edge.


United States, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley AVA is named for the river that meanders from Mendocino County in the north until it finally runs into the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. The AVA is cool thanks to its proximity to the northern California coast and the river, and grape growers must learn to deal with regular fog. Nevertheless in recent decades the AVA has become one of the best in the state, meaning that its wines often earn excellent reviews and have considerable cachet. The AVA status was awarded in 1983 and today the appellation has 15,000 vineyard acres. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape though Pinot Noir has also been very successful in recent decades. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir are known for being rich, lush and filled with concentrated fruit and berry flavors. Russian River Pinot Noirs are today considered some of the best domestic Pinot Noirs.


Red Wine, Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a black-skinned grape, but 85% of the wine produced is made into a rosy “White Zinfandel.” Red Zin is far more complex and bold, while still being light-bodied. It grows in popularity as winemakers continue to experiment with new styles and blends.
