Today’s wine of the day raises a glass to a tiny production Pinot from the heart of Russian River Valley, the Middle Reach to be specific from a new winery in the region, Domaine de la Riviere. Wine is meant to be experienced, shared, and celebrated with those you love, to be a part of a time that you will stay with you, helping create those classic memories that define a life well-lived.
Domaine de la Riviere Proprietors, Marla and Geoff Bedrosian, live by these sentiments when crafting their limited-production Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from the Middle Reach of the Russian River, knowing that wine had the power to enhance and elevate experiences, giving richness, filling you with more than just flavor, filling you with the delight that comes from fabulous adventures. I couldn’t agree more, as every glass enjoyed is an adventure.
From fruit grown within Russian River’s Middle Reach Neighborhood, filled with gravel, sandy loam, and volcanic soils, Domaine de la Riviere Middle Reach Vineyards Pinot Noir ($75) shines with energy and vibrancy from the start to the finish, leading with aromas of purple flowers, dried leaves, red fruits, and spice, followed by a plush palate of wild strawberries, ripe cherry, raspberry, cola, and truffle. Nicely balanced, with a silky, lingering finish that invites you effortlessly to enjoy another sip. #Cheers
