Wine Maker Notes
Russian River Ranches is a cuvee of wines crafted from several estate vineyards, each distinct in its own right and together, adding complexity to the blend. Vine Hill features nutrients so the vines struggle and concentrate flavor in small berries with limited yields. Shiloh and Kent vineyards add their own unique attributes, bringing backbone and a depth of elegance to the wine. The storied Cutrer vineyard provides ageability and notable tropical fruit character. A mixture of clones and rootstocks matched by experience to the soils in each vineyard assure a cornucopia of flavors that result in a legendary wine that is consistent vintage to vintage, and always among the finest offered in any given year.
