97Jeb Dunnuck

...big bouquet of buttered lemons, peach, tart pineapple, spice, and toasted bread. Beautifully textured, elegant, and seamless on the palate, with both good acidity and concentration...this is brilliant.

92Wine Enthusiast

...supple and sleek on the palate...well-integrated oak. Thickly concentrated in apple, brioche and lemon zest, it packs a balanced weightiness that has enough acidity to keep it fresh.

91The Wine Advocate

...soft nose of baker’s yeast, apricot, spring honey and white blossoms with a gently nutty undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied and silky with a good blend of savory flavor and tangy uplift, finishing long and layered.

91Wine Spectator

Well-structured, with crisp, minerally verve to the freshly cut green apple and nectarine flavors. Lots of buttery pastry notes show on the lively, pure-tasting finish.


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.
