RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

...enticing scents of lemon tart, grapefruit and lime leaves with nuances of brioche, beeswax and shaved almonds. The palate has fantastic intensity, supported by a racy line and very fine bubbles, delivering a long citrus- and toast-laced finish. Impressive!

91Wine Spectator

Bright aromas of apple and lemon verbena lead to delicately rich and creamy brioche and roasted nut flavors.

90James Suckling

A chunky and fruity sparkling wine with a rich and dense mouth feel. Full body. Flavorful and creamy. Delicious.

REGION

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.
