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.

Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2010 Product #28062 (In Stock)
Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2010 Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2010

A very nice deal on classic Russian River Chardonnay from the fine 2010 vintage, but limited at this price.

"Sourced from five Dutton Ranch vineyards with 40% from Mill Station Vineyard. 100% barrel fermented. Aged 10 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Attractive aromas of fresh pears, lemon and roasted nuts. Flavors of baked pears, green apple, and citrus in a crisp, bright style with some length on the refreshing lemon-driven finish. A terrific food wine."   Very good, Pinot Report

"Hints of Meyer lemons and Red Delicious apples wrapped in a minerally coverlet provide the focus for this well-fruited, lively, youthful Chardonnay, and while the wine is plenty tight in structure, it is surprisingly mouthfilling at the same time. Its racy style will remind some of White Burgundy yet there is Sonoma writ large on its fruit, and, it is confirmation that some sites here can produce restrained yet well-filled interpretations of the grape in willing vintages."

Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010 Product #28299 (In Stock)
Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010 Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010

We don't know much about Bearboat, but they sure do make a nice Russian River Pinot Noir!  Made from fruit purchased from various vineyards around the Valley, vinified carefully and then given 10 months in small French oak.  The wine shows pretty scents of black cherry with a bit of cassis and toast.  In the mouth plenty of stawberry, raspberry and classic Russian River candied cherry fruit are complemented by some nice hints of fresh earth and smoke.  The wine is nicely balanced - rich, but good freshness - and shows a pretty note of licorice on the finish.  Nice wine, nice value.
