95Wine Enthusiast

Blueberry, blackberry and meaty garrigue define this deliciously lush and complex wine... Thick concentration is lifted by a bright underbelly of fresh, persistent acidity...

94The Wine Advocate

...nose of roasted coffee, fried thyme and sage, dark chocolate, blackcurrants, chargrilled meats and desiccated violets. Full-bodied, it explodes in the mouth, absolutely jam-packed with ripe black fruit and savory layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless acidity to lift the very long, very flavorful finish. Wow!

94Jeb Dunnuck

...offers classic cool-climate notes of blue fruits, violets, ground pepper, and game. With medium to full body, beautiful tannins, and a seamless texture...

91Wine Spectator

Refined and multilayered, with floral blueberry, violet and black olive notes that open to crushed rock accents along the way, showing fine-grained 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, 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.
