92Jeb Dunnuck

...terrific notes of spiced cherry and strawberry fruits, white flowers, and hints of loamy earth all emerge from this pure, medium-bodied, elegant beauty...remarkable purity, silky tannins, and a great finish.

91Wine Spectator

Lively floral notes accent cherry tart and huckleberry flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Creamy midpalate, with hints of citrus zest on the spice-filled finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...opens with delicate citrus peel, potpourri, charcuterie and autumn leaves with a core of fresh red and black berries...palate is medium-bodied, silky and understated without lacking concentration, and it is juicy and uplifted with a long, amaro-laced 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.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
