Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This beautiful wine offers a simply outstanding array of complex aromas, opening with fresh raspberry, black cherry preserves, strawberry rhubarb pie, rose petals, and violets. Traces of dried figs, Forest Nameko mushrooms, anise, and cloves balance the spectrum. Elegant fresh and dried fruit flavors liberally coat the palate while silky, seductive tannins carry through to a savory, persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 Russian River Selection, from yet another strong vintage, possesses bright clarity and medium intensity in appearance with a dark ruby color. Intense aromas of dried dark cherries, plums and raspberries are matched with warm spices like cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. An earthy note of leather adds complexity to the nose. The palate shows medium plus acidity, flavor intensity, body and length with a seductive texture leading to a balanced finish. This wine will continue to reward for years to come!
