This is some good juice. Again - I'm a red girl. I don't like many whites - I find them lacking. This one never dissapoints. It's got a beautiful nose and comes up big. Just the way I like it.

This wine has been a choice of mine for years. They have yet to miss a year. Very nice.
Fabulous. Big, rich, and buttery.
Grapes are hand-picked for optimal ﬂ avor and upon arrival at the winery; they are chilled, hand-sorted and gently pressed in whole clusters before undergoing primary fermentation in small French Oak barrels. Staves principally from France’s Vosges and Allier forests, are carefully hand-selected and air seasoned for several years before being crafted by noted barrel artisans such as Tonnellerie Rousseau and Remond. To add greater complexity to the ﬁ nal blend, selected lots undergo malolactic fermentation. All lots rest sur lies in barrels for six months prior to being assembled into a uniform blend. As in most vintages, 2003 Russian River Ranches was allowed to evolve further with an additional six months of bottle aging prior to release.The 2003 Russian River Ranches is crisp and lean, with good weight in the mid palate. Melons come to mind, overlaid by a lemon citrus ﬂ avor, drifting onward to an even more buoyant lemon zest ﬁ nish of exceptional length and complexity. I’m fond of this wine with Pan Asian dishes, and traditional pairings such as shellﬁ sh or lobster risotto. An interesting cheese trio from the cart might include a Chèvre, Gruyère and Provolone.
