97Jeb Dunnuck

Huge attack, a big, full, deep mid-palate, building tannin, and extraordinary notes of red currants, underbrush, leafy herbs, and sous bois. With lots of concentration, lots of acidity, and lots of tannins, it’s an awesome effort

95+ The Wine Advocate

Vivacious notions of red cherries, pomegranate and rhubarb plus nuances of violets, dried herbs, underbrush, mossy bark and black tea. Medium-bodied, the palate is firmly textured with ripe grainy tannins and possesses lovely freshness,

94Vinous / IWC

Dense, pliant and super-expressive, with superb depth and all of the textural resonance that makes Russian River Pinot so undeniably alluring. Bright red cherry, plum, dried rose petal and spice all develop with time in the glass.

92Wine Spectator

Svelte, featuring burnished cherry tart, dried berry and baked plum flavors, backed by fresh acidity. Chocolate, cream and spice notes linger on the finish, with caressing tannins.


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.
