95James Suckling

At once cool and smoky, this pinot noir has iron in its soul...mineral freshness that drives the long and intense finish.

92Wine Enthusiast

Beautifully perfumed, this is a well-integrated wine, gritty in texture and moderate in weight. Blue and red fruit form around a tension of focused acidity and tannic balance, finishing with a spiciness of cardamom, cola and orange peel.

90The Wine Advocate

The nose opens with touches of tar and woodsmoke over Cran-Apple and pomegranate with an earthy undercurrent. It’s light-bodied, fresh, bright and lifted, with understated fruit and a juicy finish.

90Wine Spectator

Silky in texture, with medium-grained tannins supporting the fresh red fruit and spice flavors. Creamy accents emerge midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with sandalwood and hot stone hints.


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.
