Russian River, Sonoma, CA
The wine offers notes of orange rind, minerals, and tropical fruits, and medium-bodied, crisp, elegant yet authoritative flavors. It is a European-styled effort with plenty of ripe California fruit. This impressive 300-case cuvee should age nicely for 4-5 years. Honestly, the idea that you can still find a wine of this quality from California for under $20 is amazing.
