Staff Pick Notes

This is my new favorite bottle from California's Russian River A.V.A.. Silky, fragrant and sophisticated, this wine delivers on all! Complex aromas and flavors abound in every sip. Vibrant zippy acidity and deep flavors of red fruit with some spice really impress me. Organic grapes and very limited quantities ensure a unique profile that speaks of place. The team of Chris and Suzanne who started this label are dedicated to making the highest quality and as natural wine as possible. Check out there other site specific wines at Horse and Plow, you'll be impressed.
