- Russian River Valley
River Road Ranch encompasses 125 acres in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation. Sauvignon Blanc grapes thrive here in the well-drained gravel and clay loam soils. The fruit is hand-picked from fourteen-year-old vines planted with clone #01, a selection with a distinguished history in California. The growing season was ideal, with textbook weather. A moderate spring-summer-fall and a clockwork harvest gave grapes with good structure and juicy, ripe flavors.
Enticing honeysuckle aromas introduce the wine, leading to luscious flavors of summer melons and fresh mineral notes. Understated French oak nuances enhance the structure and extend through a long, silky finish. This Sauvignon Blanc makes an elegant aperitif and pairs beautifully with many complex dishes.
