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.

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

Small Vines Russian River Pinot Noir 2011 Product #27591 (In Stock)
Small Vines Russian River Pinot Noir 2011 Small Vines Russian River Pinot Noir 2011

Even in lighter vintages, this wine shines.  Paul Slaon planted and farms these vineyards using dense plantings and low training, believing that "the smaller the vine, the better the wine."  Hard to argue when you taste this!

"(75% Baranoff fruit and the rest from the Sloan's estate, on the west side of Sebastopol; 25% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Suave, incisive strawberry, dried cherry and floral scents are brightened by brisk minerality. Lithe but potent red berry flavors are crisp and impressively focused, with a late note of cherry skin adding bitter grip. There's an appealing sweetness to the finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a touch of candied rose."International Wine Cellar 91 points

Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee Blanc De Noirs 2010 Product #28615 (In Stock)
Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee Blanc De Noirs 2010 Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee Blanc De Noirs 2010

One of the most beautiful wines in the store in the glass - pale salmon pink with fine bubbles.  Very, very, tasty too!  Made from mostly Pinot Noir, this vintage is a bit more dry and sprightly than past vintages.  Aromas of brioche, raspberries, and pears invite you to enjoy the savory, food-friendly flavors.  A great sparkler for a toast, but could be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods as well.

Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River 2012 Product #28303 (In Stock)
Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River 2012 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River 2012

One of the best Chardonnay's yet from global traveler Paul Hobbs.  A Russian River classic.

"Ripe melon, orange and smoky lees aromas are lifted and sharpened by a zesty mineral quality that becomes stronger with air. Fleshy and nicely concentrated yet lively, offering juicy pear and citrus fruit flavors and a sexy floral accent. The mineral note repeats on the finish, which clings with very good clarity and tenacity."International Wine Cellar 90 points

"The 2012 Chardonnay Russian River (3,900 cases produced) will be a big-time winner. It exhibits copious aromas of tropical fruit and buttery citrus, medium to full body and a flamboyant personality. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years."Wine Advocate 90-93 points

Soliste Chardonnay l'Age d'Or 2010 Product #27079 (In Stock)
Soliste Chardonnay l'Age d'Or 2010 Soliste Chardonnay l'Age d'Or 2010

You've heard California winemakers talk about "Burgundian" Chardonnay, but this is the first we've seen to really deliver the goods.  Russian River Chard picked with fine acids and fermented and aged 16 months in thick-staved Taransaud 500ml casks. Elegant aromas of warm apples and pear with chalky, Chassagne-like, notes of mineral, smoke and butter.  Silky textured and spicy on the palate with more apple, lemon curd, and quince fruit and accents of grapefruit, salty caramel, and black tea.  The chalk and briny elements come up on the long, complex, finish to mingle with notes of lime, fruit pits, and bitter almond.  Lovely stuff.
