Wine Details below:

I am so in love with the idea of this Summer Chardonnay that I have gone ahead and coupled it with our Lot 177 2020 Russian River Rose for a mixed- as well as whole-case purchase opportunity. So, take your pick!

The winery and vineyard are located in the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley appellation on an uplifted plateau just a stones throw from Kistler and Iron Horse Vineyards. The winery hired a few years ago a very experienced North Coast winemaker to lead the Rennaissance of the brand but COVID put a damper on the export markets as well as their tasting room business. We were able to purchase this Chardonnay as well as a very small Lot of Carneros Pinot Noir for a most excellent price.

Pale yellow in the glass. The bouquet is pure and delineating nicely with flint, river rock, and caramel apple notes with a spicy, candied ginger, ripened Bosc pear, and marshmallow halo. Opening up nicely with plenty more complexity to come. Soft, smooth and elegant on entry soft with ripe pear, a kiss of honey and marshmallow on the mid-palate with a hint of roasted cashew on the finish. The pretty, mineral-driven acidity is nicely attenuated throughout the lengthy, echoing finish. This is a pretty and elegant style of Russian River Chardonnay perfect for warm summer nights.

This Rose of Pinot Noir is flat out gorgeous and one of the prettiest Rosé's you'll see (sorry I don't have a bottle image but our designer is buried in label development). It's aged in neutral oak for about 5 months and comes out a lovely, pale salmon color. The bouquet is crisp and beautifully expressive with rose petal, watermelon, and crisp strawberry with hints of lemon verbena and grapefruit. Its smooth, almost creamy, on the palate with pretty, pure, nuanced fruit laid out over soft, mineral tannins that finish with a crisp, delicate elegance and sustained sucosité. Fantastic! Or, I should say, Fantastique!
