93The Wine Advocate

...possesses a very evocative nose of warm peaches, apple pie and dried pineapple with touches of candied ginger, jasmine and beeswax. Rich, full-bodied and packed with preserved stone fruits and savory layers, it has a fabulous uplifting backbone and great length.

92Vinous / IWC

Deep, smoky aromas of pear, orange pith and spicecake lifted by a mineral topnote. Fat, dense and rich, with powerful orchard fruit and spice flavors and a sneaky mineral quality coming up with air. This opulent, palate-staining wine benefits greatly from its spine of minerality, which adds focus and cut to an impressively long, sweet, spicy finish.

91Wine Spectator

A rich, full-bodied, creamy style, with complex vanilla, fig, nectarine, honeysuckle and melon flavors, gaining depth and dimension on the 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.
