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.

"Golden color and tight, bright acidity characterize this wine that tingles in balanced flavors of pear and lemon. It also offers a touch of orange blossom on the nose and caramel on the finish."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

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

Novy Ziinfandel Russian River 2012 Product #29267 (In Stock)

Yes, it's big (15.7%) but the fleshy texture avoids heaviness or any fat.  Finishes warm and rich.

"Deeply pitched black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by notes of licorice and mocha, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Broad, fleshy and gently sweet, offering smoky blackcurrant and cherry compote flavors and a touch of fruitcake. Tightens up on the lengthy finish, which is firmed by dusty tannins and leaves a spicy note behind."International Wine Cellar 89 points

Porter Creek Chardonnay Russian River 2012 Product #29459 (In Stock)

A rich, frankly-oaked, RRV Chardonnay with generous fruit and a fine, smoky, finish.

"Smoky lees, poached pear, honey and chamomile on the deeply scented nose. More fleshy and open-knit than usual for a Porter Creek chardonnay, offering round pit and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of tangerine. Closes with very good smoky intensity, leaving subtle herb and sweet butter notes behind."International Wine Cellar 90 points

"The 2013 Chardonnay Estate is gorgeous, as well as a fabulous introduction to Tom Rochioli's wines. Lemon zest, spices, pear and brioche all meld together in a supple, textured Chardonnay long on class and polish. There is so much to like here."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"A rich, full-bodied style, with smoky notes wrapped around a core of vibrant green apple, pear, honeydew and subtle citrus. Ends with an accent of toasty oak."Wine Spectator 93 points
