This is a wine that screams, “I’m from Green Valley!” The Green Valley AVA is way out on the western edge of the Russian River Valley AVA, making it a very cool site. The cold nights and slow-to-warm-up days create an environment that yields wines with subtle flavor and aromatic profiles. This one is light ruby in the glass, with strawberry and cherry-pie fruit aromatic components, with some cedar and a slight salinity coming out of the glass as well. On the palate we taste light cranberry and some bright cherry notes that lead to some drying tannins, for a medium-length finish that’s light and airy.
