2013 J Vineyards Pinot Gris Russian River Valley $23
With pear, lemongrass and honeydew melon notes, this medium-bodied, juicy and refreshing white is delicious as a sipper, and great with spicy dishes too.
2011 Trione Chardonnay Russian River Valley $32
Winemaker Scot Covington is quietly building a reputation for himself as one of the greatest winemakers in California. This Chardonnay, from individual vine blocks on the estate, is rich, round, and opulent with notes of baked apple, almond croissant, and orange blossom honey.
2012 Fog Crest Estate Pinot Noir Russian River Valley $55
From their southeast facing estate vineyard, James and Rosalind Manoogian produce beautiful, small lot Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Their Pinot Noir is classic RRV with notes of sassafras, dried herbs, ripe cherry and cherry cola.
Sonoma wines... Enjoy!
