River Road Ranch is a 115-acre jewel in the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA. Chardonnay vines thrive in well-drained soils, shrouded with fog cooled nights, ideal growing conditions. The grapes for this wine came from two blocks of twelve and fifteen-year-old vines, planted with clones #4, 95, and 2A-Wente.
Quince and Honeycrisp apples are the first impressions on the nose. The palate is firm yet yielding with depth and complexity. Yeasty, crusty baguettes come to mind. This wine is youthful but shows great potential for aging beautifully for the next 7-10 years. This may be the most age worthy vintage to date. - Scot Covington - Winemaker
