Wine Release: 2009 Russian River Valley Sémillon
October 20, 2012 @ 10:00 am - October 21, 2012 @ 5:00 pm
Join us on this wine release weekend and enjoy a complementary tasting of the Sémillon.
2009 Russian River Valley Sémillon
Produced exclusively from the Herrick Vineyard in the warmer northern part of the Russian River Valley. Here the growing season is long and warm enough to ripen the fruit to very high sugar, allowing us to make this sweet, luscious, Sauternes style dessert wine. Packed with rich honey, peach, and apricot aromas and flavors, our Sémillon is aged in new tight-grain Burgundy barrels that lend spicy oak, hazelnut, and vanilla to its unique bouquet.
