95Wine Enthusiast

...delineated by high-toned acidity and gorgeously floral aromatics...generosity of fresh apple and pear ride a voluptuous, balanced texture that's wholly satisfying, before meeting deeper hues of spicy, exotic tropical tones on the finish.

93The Wine Advocate

...offers plenty of old Wente, the classic hallmark of white peach, but in this case, backed up with crushed rock and white pebble notes... The wine has tremendous intensity, full-bodied ripeness, but great acidity and a style...

90Wine Spectator

Complex aromas of light nutmeg and oak lead to a trim, elegant offering of ripe green apple and pear. Ends juicy, with a spicy kick and a pithy 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.
