Tasting Notes: A blend of the best single vineyard wines that embodies the diverse characteristics and flavor profiles of the Russian River Valley. A spicy, lush and bright wine with notes of cherry.
An elegant blend of wines with a unique flavor that we consider to be the essential “Russian River Valley” wine. This wine is a striking complement to our traditional single vineyard approach. It affords us the luxury to mix & match the distinct characteristics and flavor profiles from our various vineyards.
And it is anything but your traditional “blend”. Because it is made exclusively from our premium single vineyard wines, we think it is a cut above typical Cuvees. Case in point: 35% of this blend was aged in new french oak barrels, a level you will rarely, if ever, see in a Cuvee.
Even better, this wine is an incredible every day value!
