Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Product #28497 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River 2013

An excellent Russian River Chardonnay at a very attractive price. The aromas and flavors feature creamy pineapple, crisp pear, and fresh apple with a light touch of buttered popcorn and vanilla from oak aging.  Fine balance here in a fairly elegant California Chardonnay with a creamy, soft, mid-palate texture. Pineapple, passion fruit, buttered toast, and green apple flavors linger nicely on the bright, clean, finish. Rock-solid.

Rued Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Product #28933 (In Stock)
Rued Chardonnay Russian River 2013 Rued Chardonnay Russian River 2013

When Henry Rued left his family's vineyards in Switzerland and arrived in Napa Valley to work for Beringer Brothers in 1876, he probably never imagined that his descendents would still be growing grapes and making wine in California 138 years later.  Today, the husband and wife team of Steve and Sonia Rued sell most of the grapes from their vineyards in Dry Creek, Alexander Valley, and the Russian River Valley - but keep the very best for their 3,500 case per year family winery.

We've enjoyed multiple vintages of Rued Chardonnay in the past, but the 2013 is clearly the best yet. The ripe, luscious, Russian River fruit takes center stage with generous aromas and flavors of Golden Delicious apple, melon, ripe pear and sweet citrus.  A deft touch with oak (just 10% new) gives nice hints of vanilla and spice along with a fun buttered popcorn note.  The wine starts crisp and focused, spreads out to coat you mouth with rich, ripe fruit, and then snaps back into focus with a bright finish of apple, Meyer lemon, and spice.  Just what a Russian River Chardonnay should be and a great choice for sipping, parties, or a wide range of foods - and, at this price, an outstanding value.

Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013 Product #29041 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013 Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris Russian River Valley 2013

No one is sure how this native grape from eastern France’s Jura region reached the USA, but it was once widely planted (if equally widely mis-identified) across California.  Today the sole source for Trousseau Gris wine grapes is the small Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River.  Winemakers Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams  give it a cool fermentation in tank and neutral oak and bottle it just 4 months later to capture all of its freshness and vivid acids. A crazy cool and delicious wine to sip by itself, with salads, fish, or even Asian foods.

“Fresh herbs, white pepper, smoke and spices on the nose; reminded me a bit of gruner veltliner. Tactile, saline and bracing in the mouth, with very dry but not overly herbal flavors of lemon zest, anise, white pepper and snap pea. Dusty and concentrated but not hard. Saturates the palate with lemon, pepper and spices on the lingering finish. Leaves the mouth feeling refreshed. I like this style.”International Wine Cellar 90 points
