(2011 Vintage) While primarily from the Green Valley and Russian River Valley, this really reflects the crisper side of the region in this very cool season. It is a careful blend of both pre– rain and post rain material that compliment and support each other. I love having this flexibility to achieve balance without manipulating the wines. The aromatics are very powerful and geared toward perfumes and higher– notes rather than dark fruits. Very mouth– watering, it is fantastic at the table and is perfect with salmon.
