94Wine Enthusiast

Concentrated and velvety, this estate-grown wine is oak-forward, with a dense midpalate of delicious berry flavor. The tannins are structured and decadent, leading the way to a core of impressive length and breadth, accented in forest, citrus and tea.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...lots of framboise, strawberry, and cherry notes as well as spice, peppery herbs, and sweet earth.

93Wine Spectator

Juicy and broad, with a forward set of mulled raspberry, red cherry and blood orange notes liberally laced with anise and singed apple wood. Offers a late flurry of wood spice on the finish, as the fruit keeps pace.


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.
