Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised. The aromas of cocoa, vanilla, herbs, licorice and red fruit are pleasant and up-front, while the flavors are savory and extend into the medium-length finish. Drink now for freshness. This is a no-fuss wine, but it`s dry, full-bodied and complex. The nose has a classic Russian River character, with dill, bay leaf and a gamy beef-tomato note. On the palate, the wine is decidedly dry, with bright acidity and a creamy, almost hazelnutty finish. Give it a good decant and drink now. Rounded, ripe and warm, this is a wine for lovers of dark, mysterious wines. It has weight, balanced by intense acidity, and a darkly mineral character. Give it a year to age to soften the power. Enormously ripe, as you`d expect from this famous vineyard.
