...offers lots of upfront fruit as well as texture, yet still has plenty of ripe tannins and structure. Blackberries, black cherries, peppery herbs, and some savory, meaty notes all emerge from the glass, and it’s beautifully balanced and medium to full-bodied, with plenty of length on the finish.

...powerful, virile wine. Inky dark fruit, licorice, graphite and a good bit of whole cluster savorines...has so much of everything, starting with intense fruit and imposing tannic clout.


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, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
