Taste

True to its cool-climate origins, it leads with beautiful stone-fruit flavors that manage to be rich and refreshing at the same time. A complex bouquet of ripe nectarine, green apple, tropical pineapple, and apricot opens up to fresh white peach framed by classic flavors of crème brûlée, lush vanilla bean and well integrated, toasty oak. An elegant creamy, lingering finish balanced by a firm underpinning of acidity.

Serve

Impress guests with this special pour your next holiday brunch or dinner. French in style with clean fruit and balanced acidity, it makes a great complement to braised chicken thighs or rosemary roast turkey.

Pair

Seafood: Sautéed shellfish, grilled swordfish with herb butter, smoked salmon
Poultry and meats: Grilled chicken with lemon salsa, roast pork loin with apricot glaze
Pasta dishes: Alfredo, Carbonara, cream and lemon-based pastas
Vegetables: Salad Niçoise, creamy quiche, corn salads

About the Appellation

Russian River AVA
If there was only one word you could use to describe the key influence on the regional growing conditions it would certainly be “fog.” The vines soak up the afternoon sun, which brings the grapes along, gradually, toward maturity. They spend their mornings and evenings under a cool veil of coastal fog, which rolls in from the Pacific ocean, just a few miles away. The persistent daily fog keeps the natural acidity bright and extends the growing season, often by as much as 15 -20% over neighboring regions, giving the grapes the all-important hang-time they need to develop peak flavor maturity.
