Winemaker Notes
Reflecting the vibrant character and cool-climate structure of an ideal winegrowing season in the Russian River Valley, this bright and elegantly balanced wine displays enticing white flower, Meyer lemon, white fig and almond blossom aromatics, alongside a subtle oak-inspired note of pie crust. Focused flavors of Anjou pear, green apple and lemon custard lead to a broad, lush mid-palate, with refreshing acidity adding further length and intensity.
The 2009 growing season offered picture-perfect growing conditions in the Russian River Valley. A relatively dry winter was followed by a dry spring, which naturally limited canopy growth and yields. Summer offered consistently even temperatures, with a classic Russian River Valley mix of cool, foggy mornings and afternoon sunshine. A moderate heat event in mid-September brought sustained temperatures in the 90s for the better part of two weeks. This timely heat allowed the fruit to develop pure, focused flavors, without losing natural acidity.
