Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

Maritana Vineyards

Dutton Ranch Hansen Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Light golden in color.

On the nose ripe lemons, yellow apples, oak, light butter, citrus, vanilla, Indian spices, light honeysuckle and light tangerines.

Full bodied, creamy and bold, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with red apples, oak, vanilla, citrus, spices, sea salt, white pepper and light earth.

Nice length on the finish with lemons and almonds.

This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Russian River Valley. Showing nice complexity, especially on the nose. I really enjoyed the nose more than the palate.

This four year old is drinking very nicely now with lots of oak and vanilla notes. Still very fresh.

Good right out of the bottle, and much better after 30 minutes of airtime.

This Single Vineyard Chardonnay is a good quality wine, that will continue to age nicely in the next five years. I've had this vintage a year ago, and it is much better now.

Nicely balanced with a great mouth feel. Buttery and creamy, and better when not very cold.

Aged in French oak barrels. A small production of only 350 cases.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$90.

Special Reserve Méthode Champenoise Russian River Valley Chardonnay

This pale yellow wine produces a nice, white froth when poured. The nose has yeasty notes of citrus and stone fruit, with an earthy element that is fabulous. The toast and earth aspects are also present on the palate. It’s a dry wine, but there is a sweetness about it that has everything to do with the fruit. This is one California sparkling wine I could easily recommend. — 19 days ago

Left this exposed to air for 90 mins, before approaching it. Nice classic chard presentation. Moderate oak treatment leads into soft acidity, caramel and mature pineapples. Nice weighty mouthfeel. Very well done and probably peaking now. — 18 days ago

Aida Russian River Valley Viognier 2020

Winemaker Steve Law learned his trade in The Rhone Valley and his goal of creating Rhone-style wines in Sonoma is achieved here. This viognier is well-balanced and with more minerality than you find in California viognier. — 9 days ago

Russian River Selection Pinot Noir 2018

Woah. Vanilla clove and slightly dusty notes overtake the red fruit on the nose but the body is smooth fruity and complex in a fun way. Barely any bitterness on the finish but spicy goodness. Outkicks its price point in a big way. — 14 days ago

Nose of ripe plum, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, cinnamon, and subtle tobacco. Good fruit concentration and intensity on the palate. Full body with cool acidity and velvety tannins.
Was thinking about the a Zin to pair with the burger, but this turns out to be just fabulous.
