The Russian River viticultural area has long been renowned for producing Chardonnays with finesse and balance. We are pleased to be offer this wine as a Gold Medal Wine Club Special Selection! At first sip, you might think of this wine as a “modern styled” Cassagne-Montrachet.

The 2005 Belvedere Russian River Chardonnay is light yellow color with a clear hue throughout. A delicate nose with a buttery front followed by aromas of pear, crisp apple, light vanilla, and pineapple notes open up freely. Ripe fruit flavors of Bartlett pear, Macintosh apple and Meyer lemon offer substantial counterpoint to beautifully suggestive French oak components of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and hazelnut. The crisp acidity, characteristic of Russian River Valley fruit, allows the flavors of this wine to linger long on the palate, which finish with a touch of crème brûlée leaving you wanting more. Pair with Rosemary Chicken, or the Cellar Rat Cioppino.
