Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Russian River Selection, from yet another strong vintage, possesses bright clarity and medium intensity in appearance with a dark ruby color. Intense aromas of dried dark cherries, plums and raspberries are matched with warm spices like cinnamon, cloves and vanilla. An earthy note of leather adds complexity to the nose. The palate shows medium plus acidity, flavor intensity, body and length with a seductive texture leading to a balanced finish. This wine will continue to reward for years to come!

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

Complex aromas, dried strawberries, cherries and flowers follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long savory finish. This wine really makes you want to drink it. Open the bottle now or cellar for three or four years.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Rich, ripe and classy, this shows real pedigree in its structure, with brisk acids, firm tannins and a hint of minerals providing the architecture for the cherry and pomegranate flavors. It finishes totally dry and is ready to drink now.
