True to its appellation, the nose is dominated with black fruits, forest floor and shitake mushroom. Concentrated ripe black berries explode on the palate, moving into nuances of fresh raspberies and boysenberry with nuances of lavender and rose petal.
The 2011 vintage in the Willamette Valley was very similar to 2010, which was a typical one for Oregon. The long, cool growing season produced wines of great structure and balance as opposed to 2008 and 2009, where the wines were dominated by up front, ripe, almost candied fruit. The 2011 "Alphabets" is deep garnet in color, with a nose of dried cherry, cranberry, cinnamon and a touch of smoke. The palate shows Bing cherry, red raspberry and white pepper, with bright acidity, firm tannins and excellent structure.
The 2011 "Summit" has complex aromas of fresh crushed raspberries, just ripened blackberries and nuances of white pepper, grilled meat, mineral and floral characters. Waves of layering with intense soft tannins that flesh over the palate carrying focused cherry, deep dark chocolate, limestone and minerality.
Sweet ripe raspberry and black cherry erupt from the glass. Plush, dense tannins deliver a rich mouthfeel layered with blackberries, plums and red fruits synonymous with Russian River.
