While primarily from the Green Valley and Russian River Valley, this really reflects the crisper side of the region in this very cool season. It is a careful blend of both pre– rain and post rain material that compliment and support each other. I love having this flexibility to achieve balance without manipulating the wines. The aromatics are very powerful and geared toward perfumes and higher– notes rather than dark fruits. Very mouth– watering, it is fantastic at the table and is perfect with salmon. It takes the attractive sides of the 2008 vintage of this to a whole new level. Yes, I’d look forward to another vintage like this if that is in the weather cards.
