Aromas of rose petal, white peach and a mineral quality we describe as ‘wet stone’ extend to the full palate. The wine is luscious, highlighted with distinctive minerality and a firm, refreshing finish. This Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect complement to fresh oysters and wild Pacific salmon, simply grilled.
Summer White Wine Pick by Ziggy the Wine Gal:
"#RefreshingWhite – Trione Vineyards and Winery 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, River Road Ranch, Russian River Valley. This fabulous sauv blanc was nothing short of tantalizing and zesty with notes of grapefruit, wildflowers, wet seashells, and young pineapple. This is without a doubt one of the BEST Sauvignon Blancs I’ve ever tasted… and I’ve tasted a lot!"
Winemaker Notes: Elegant and seductive aromas of apple, citrus and vanilla lead to a smooth, silky palate—firm in structure, rich in flavor. The Chardonnay’s full dimension extends through a lingering finish with hints of orange peel and warm spice. This Chardonnay will continue to develop over the next five to seven years.
River Road Ranch encompasses 125 acres in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation. Located on the western bench of the Santa Rosa Plain, the vineyard thrives in well-drained soils. The region’s fog-cooled nights are ideal for this varietal.
Only a few cases remain! This wine is 50% off while it lasts!!

This wine is a classic Russian River Valley Pinot. It presents aromas of dark cherry, exotic spice, green tea and a slight earthiness referred to as forest floor. It is silky on the palate, beautifully balanced and with a long finish. The firm structure suggests excellent aging potential. This wine will cellar for 7 - 10 years.
Aromas of briarwood and pipe tobacco give way to blackberry pie, toasted macaroons and plums. The wine is velvety, supple and rich with a long, satisfying finish. This Zinfandel, a Sonoma County classic, will continue to age for many years to come.
