A hugely aromatic wine with notes of blueberry, blackberry, and spice. A smooth but strong, prevalent texture with elegant balance. Appian Way vineyard sits in an ideal growing location, with well-drained goldridge soil allowing roots to flourish, producing remarkably consistent high quality fruit. Drink it now or in 5 to 7 years. This Pinot Noir will have you at first sip, with its rich, bright fruit.
From the Santa Rosa Plains neighborhood, a relatively warm region by Russian River Valley standards, comes this elegant and subtle Pinot Noir. The Bella Luna Vineyard is small (just one acre) and its vines are tightly spaced to encourage root propagation and generate rich, luscious fruit. The warmth induces earlier ripening, resulting in strong aromas of ripe, red fruit with a distinctive tartness. A slow-acting yeast is employed to extend fermentation and extract the essential characteristics of the grape. The outcome is a complex and layered wine with delicate flavors of chocolate and hints of spice that complement its bright acidity and well-rounded fruit.
Blend of 76% Merlot, 8% Charbono, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Petite Sirah
The Bella Luna Vineyard is only 1 acre in size and was planted in 2000. In 2003, our first Pinot Noir from this vineyard won a gold medal in the San Francisco Wine Competition.
The Russian River Vineyards 2019 Petite Sirah Rosé from the Wedge Family Vineyard in the Fountaingrove AVA, is a stunning color: sunset pink with a touch of blue. With aromas of flowers, red grapefruit and tangelo, it yields pomegranate, apple, blood orange, and ruby red grapefruit on the palate, with plenty of depth, grip and good length.
With the grapes picked at the peak of ripeness, this wine will greet you with exquisite tropical aromas on the nose and delightfully bright acidity on the palate, leading to a well-rounded finish. Enjoy on its own or pair with a spicy Asian-inspired dish.
An unmatched heritage. This wine is made from the budwood of the vines that produced the California Chardonnay that rocked the industry by winning the infamous “Judgment of Paris” wine tasting in 1976. And the quality has persisted. This wine features floral aromatics with hints of vanilla and a subtle sweetness infused by aging in French Oak.
Strongly aromatic and smoky characteristics from French & American Oak barrels. With strong tannins, this wine pairs wonderfully with hearty meat dishes like braised short ribs or filet mignon. Wedge vineyard sits in one of Sonoma’s newest viticultural regions that gets the optimal advantage of warm summer days & cool nights.
Tip: try it with chocolate truffles.
