Review

The Russian River is delicious: ripely flavored and somewhat fleshy in texture, a wine with excellent balance and a long, persistent finish, tasting of lime, pear, lemon peel, toast, sweet corn, and spicy oak. Can be aged further. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 18% new. Unfiltered. 14.5%
