The Region 

The Russian River Valley soils emerged from ancient, shallow seabeds in Sonoma, California.  Cool marine conditions make for a long growing period while maintaining moderate acidity due to the eroded volcanic soils.  This balance cultivates some the world’s most prestigious wines.

Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley appellation lies at the geographical heart of Sonoma County.  Due to the AVA’s large size, numerous microclimates exist within its boundaries.  The valley’s climate is heavily influenced by the Russian River and by cool coastal winds and fog entering the valley from the south. The vineyards here are strategically monitored by winged protectors such as falcons and hawks.  These beautiful birds comb the vineyards for prey while gracefully flashing their wide wing spans in flight.  

Chardonnay

The 2018 Chardonnay has a bright gold hue with fruit aromas of ripe apple, light lemon and butter. The mouth feel is smooth like butter and light toast with hints of vanilla. This full bodied wine has moderate acidity and a long finish without being overly complex.
