93+ Points Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Chardonnay Russian River Valley has lemongrass, orange blossoms and cedar notes over a core of white peaches, grapefruit and green mango. Medium to full-bodied with a gorgeously creamy textured and mouth-filling stone fruit and citrus layers, it has a racy backbone and a very long finish, with some toasty notes coming through."



90 Points The Wine Enthusiast



"Aged in French oak for more than a year (20% new), this is a full-bodied and layered wine. Strong aromas of French butter and baguette dominate the nose. The midpalate offers more brightness, revealing high-toned accents of apple blossom, lemon and mango wrapped in tart acidity before returning to the richness of crème brûlée on the close." 



Our Thoughts.........



 Bright aromas of meaty apple, shortbread, and lemon zest couple with lovely flavors of Asian pear, marzipan, and crème brûlée to create a rich wine that proudly boasts fresh acids and a long finish. The classic flavors and profile of the Russian River Valley shine through this beautifully integrated wine. Pair with seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops.  Also simply roast chicken, dishes that include wild mushrooms, slow roast tomatoes, white truffles or fish, especially Sea bass and anything with fennel. Yum!
