A Thousand Feet
Our entire tasting panel went wild for this delicious, complex and velvet-smooth wine. We can’t help but feel that this delicious wine would work with a very wide assortment of foods.
Born in the Russian River Valley, today’s 2010 Ruxton Vineyard Chardonnay is an exciting and very refreshing wine - with plenty of character.
We’ve had the pleasure to have featured wines from the 1000’ elevation Ruxton Vineyard, in the past, and we’ve absolutely loved them. Today’s Ruxton Chard, from Lost Canyon, is our new favorite. We only wish that there was more of this wine available, but we purchased every last case. The wine will sell out so please act quickly.
Golden straw yellow with even coloration, from the of the wine out to the meniscus.
Sweet custard lemon, sweetgrass, brioche, vanilla custard, kefir lime leaf and a hint of geranium.
Soft and velvety on entry, this wine is complex and delicious, with bright flavors of lemon custard, green melon, butterscotch, almond skin, star fruit and white pepper at the tail end.
Very long and refreshing, with long-lingering rich flavors that tail off to a slight limestone flavor.
Enjoy this complex Chardonnay with a wild mushroom papardelle in a light cream sauce.
