    "Our first release of Wester Reach Chardonnay is a detailed, harmonious translation of the beautiful region where we live and farm. Distinct from our single vineyard bottlings, this cuvee comprises some of the most prized sites in the appellation, vineyards we have planted, farmed and harvested over the past twenty years. We have interwoven three of the Russian River Valley’s unique sub-districts, from the valley floor stretching westward to the coolest “reaches” of the coast. We build this blend in the vineyard, understanding how each site contributes signature fruit character, be it the richness and breadth of our valley floor parcels, the taut density and power of our ridgeline parcels, or the focus and intensity of our coastal parcels.

    This wine showcases the “Who’s Who” of the Russian River Valley, and is quintessentially DuMOL in style and intrinsic quality. The 44-year-old vines of the iconic Ritchie Vineyard in the Laguna Ridge District contribute a classic, broad orange oil richness. To that, we layer in the savory/herbal complexity and focused stone fruits of Lorenzo Vineyard’s 42-year-old vines in the Santa Rosa Plains. Rising up from the valley and moving westward towards the coast, our high-density DuMOL Estate vines lend bright floral notes and powerful citrus fruit while the Green Valley’s higher-elevation low-yielding Dutton Ranch sites bring density and texture, acidity and focus. The 34-year old vines at the majestic Heintz Ranch complement the blend with citrus oil and truffle-infused complexity.

    Orange zest, white flower, sweet sage and hay aromas yield to softer peach and apricot. The palate is full of energy and vigor with clear-cut fruit intensity and savory character. Ripe stone fruits dominate with an underscore of oatmeal and marzipan. Texture builds with a core of old vine extract balanced with vibrant lime and oyster shell freshness. The finish is long, cleansing, and refined."

    If an item does not have the vintage in the title/item name, we do not guarantee a specific vintage unless we explicitly advertise that vintage for sale. Additionally, the pictures of products on our website are for visual/informational purposes and do not necessarily indicate the current vintage(s) or labels available.

    The Alcohol By Volume / ABV percentage reported is meant to be a general guideline given fluctuations in production, sometimes ABV is reported as a range (ex. 12.5% - 13.5%), etc.

    Wines labeled as "highly rated" are wines that at some point, including prior vintages, received excellent reviews and scores/points from established critics (and we do our best to report the specific vintage reviewed in the product description notes). It is meant to indicate (as a general guide) that the wine producer received accolades for that product for convenient filtering when browsing and searching.
